Unresponsive power button?
I'm suddenly having a non responsive power button and it happens if I wanted to manually put the phone on timeout (instead of waiting for my 1 min setting). I can still get the drop down menu when I hold the power button down, but once shut off (or the timeout setting kicks in) I cannot get it to come back on. I've removed the battery several times and did a factory reset
Anyone having this issue and or have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!

I don't even dl a ton of apps, I'm more of a messenger/txt/web surfing user. The last thing I was doing was using the led light app someone suggested and 5 minutes later the power button stopped functioning I had nothing else running since I that auto kill app. Have not had single problem since launch until now
P.S. Be nice if the power button was slightly more lifted and camera in the back more pitted :P

I also noted that I was a tad impatient. If I feel a "click" from the button, I need to wait 1-2 seconds for the screen to light up with the HTC logo. I guess I was expecting something to happen rather instantaneously. Hopefully, this helps out with your issue, too.

Thanks for the feedback everyone
After staying up all night trying to figure out the problem, I finally got it up and running again After removing the battery and factory resetting several times, I decided to try and use a air spray can throughout the whole device as my last attempt. Before doing this, there was no sight of dust in the crevices of the power button either, I guess I was wrong. Now the power button works a lot better than before!
Here's hoping no other issue with the button occurs again
