    Look up "Gravity Screen" in the play store.
    Best settings I found was to go to sleep by turning the phone upside down, and waking by the proximity sensor. Those options seem both reliable (but I guess it depends on the phone's sensors) and battery friendly.

    The only way other than having the switch replaced is to solder wires to the switch contacts and short them to activate the switch's function (long short for menu, short short for screen on-off).

    Putting the phone to sleep isn't turning it off. And you can't install the app unless you can turn the phone on.

    Yeah, you're right, I thought only about turning the screen on and off.
    Could have been a temporary solution for the screen if the phone has been powered on...
