I think you can put the phone into DFU mode by holding the home button whilst turning the iPhone on when connected to iTunes. iTunes will then detect an iPhone in restore mode?

There might be a software problem in your iPhone. I think your power button is alright.

Time to spend some money. You should move to the Apple store. So that the power button get solved.
Why spend 250.00 to get a replacement which is what Apple will offer when you can just buy a new iPhone with a two year contract for less? Mark
