    Ok, here's my situation. I got caught in a bad storm, ended up drenched, and have been having phone difficulties since then. After some initial troubles, I gave it some time and it's working. The problem is that for some reason my on/off button doesn't work. This wouldn't be a problem since plugging it in or opening the keyboard wakes the screen up, my issue is that I would like to take it in to verizon but I'm rooted and running a custom rom, so i'd like to load my nandroid backup prior to taking it in. Here's my question: how do I access that without an active on/off button?

    Thanks in advance!

    Download QuickBoot from the market. Free App, lets you power down, reboot, or reboot to recovery!
    Good luck!

    But once in recovery that app will not be accessible.

    OP is the power key completely disabled or will it work with repeated pressings?

    The power button occasionally works, but it's more or less a random event.

    Alright, well I got it back to stock so at least I can take it in now. Thanks for the help, the quick boot app worked perfectly!
