    The power button on my palm pre won't turn on because the power button is stuck. Usually when you press the button to turn on the phone you can feel it click or press down. Mine almost seems as if it is stuck, but it doesnt look as if the button is depressed.

    I didn't drop it at all, it just came out of nowhere. Anyone else ever have this problem? I do have insurance on it and I am going to go after work and see if I can get it fixed.

    I had this problem for like 3 strait days a couple weeks ago but it magically stopped happening. In some other threads people were saying it was some kind of memory overload and you had to clear all your catche by pop'n out the battery for a hard reset. I had to do this everytime it happened to get the phone turned back on and it got stuck on the palm screen for 5 to 10 min each time. But after doing this several times I havnt had the problem again since, not sure why it happened to begin with

    There is a much easier way to turn it on, Do a battery pull, reinstall battery then plug in the wall charger or put it on the T/S if you have one. The Pre will boot

    This happened to my old Pre. It'll still work if you press it really hard. I used to press mine against a hard surface such as a table or a wall.

    When my power button acts up I open the slider and click the center button... Also works on the Pre+ "open the slider and tap the touch sensitive area".

    pop the button off from the rear side with a small screwdriver, then get a tiny piece of paper... Tiny!! And roll it into a little ball, plop it inside, and put the buton back on, boom works fine now!

    One thing for sure about HP, they know how to make an on/off button that works. Can't wait for my H-Palm webOS phone!
