All these will help you to wake up your device to let use it again.
But if the device is switched off, the situation is more knotty. You may need to Install some third-party apps on your device. We will have a look on to them in the following tips.
- If your phone is switched off, you should try pressing and holding the volume down button along with the Home button.

You can turn off your device without a power button using third-party apps such as “Button Savior”, Power Button to Volume Button, Gravity Screen, Proximity Actions etc. You can install all these apps from the Google Play Store.
When you open the app, you should select the “Kill/Start Button Savior Service. Then tap and hold the Power Button on the bottom part of the icon list. Select the Power Off option on the device option list.
Power Button to Volume Button
This app will allow you to use the volume button instead of the power button to wake up your device. But the device consumes a hell lot of battery charge.
With this app, the device screen gets automatically off when we put the device in our Pocket or a table and when we take up, it immediately gets wake up.
Just with a simple hand wave, over the proximity sensor, you can lock and unlock the device using the Proximity Actions App.
Even though the apps aforementioned might be helpful when your power button is not working, it is necessary that you get your power button fixed permanently.
