Is there other ways to enter fastboot?

I've dropped my phone (ATRIX HD) and now it isn't turning on. The thing is when I connect to charger it shows the green light and start to boot (motorola logo appears) but then it keeps restarting forever. I've read that to solve this you enter fastboot mode and do some modifications. The problem is that I'm unable to enter fastboot when the phone is connected to the pc instead of the charger. Since the power button broke it gets even harder because I have to use a mini screwdriver to press it (and it is very hard to press the volume down at the same time also). So, is there any other way to pass the files needed for recovery or to enter fastboot mode? Thanks!

Unfortunately the only way is to have had usb debugging enabled and the computer automatically detected. If you enable that within developer settings then there's nothing you can do.

If you did, then there's the possibility that you can transfer the files using ADB.
