    On my phone the power button stopped working, like totally stopped. No screen locking, no screen shots, no power button at all. I have the app Smart Screen Lite which will let me turn my screen off; which I am ok with. I do need to restart, turn off and turn back on my phone, every couple of days just because it lags like crap. I downloaded Fast Reboot app, but that doesn't solve anything. Are there any apps out there that will restart my phone? Power off and power back on? I'm eligible for a new phone in 2 months so I just need this to work that much longer.

    Welcome to Android Central! In order to do this, I think you'd have to root the phone. Even then, I'm not sure if it would power off and then power on again. Here's a Power Off app.

    If I run this app on my phone will it looks like it will turn my phone off, but I will not be able to turn it back on, the power button is does not function at all.

    I know, I mentioned that. But it's a starting point. Maybe you could continue searching along those lines. Good luck!
