    Default Power/Lock button stopped working

    The power button on the phone has stopped working suddenly so I cant lock the phone or even turn it off. Is there anything I can do to fix this or is it best to just go into my local EE store?

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forums.
    I would guess this is some kind of hardware problem. If so, it would need to be torn apart to see what can fix it.

    I agree, sounds like a hardware issue.

    As a temp fix you can use a wake lock app to power your phone on and off.
