My power button is sticking all the time now. When i want to turn the screen off, it just goes to the reboot menu. Screen on works fine, just have to press the button pretty hard. just wondering if there is a trick i can do or somehow take my D2G apart to fix this.

You can install MIUI or CM7.

You can change camera button to turn screen on/off

You have 3 options.

1. use shake and lock from the market.

2. Use screen off and lock from the market. (Its a Widget)

3. Use button remapper to map your camera button (or other button) to as act as the power button. Its not on the market. (Google is your friend)

Couldn't get button remapper to work. Says it doesn't work on d2. Don't know if that means d2g as well.

I agree with the earlier post about 'screen off and lock' in Android market. It does not play too well with Stock GB, but works great with these other ROMS. I use it as a shortcut on my homescreen, then use ADW EX Launcher to adjust rows columns to get it at center of screen. Then edit it to a transparent icon, and delete name, again using ADW EX. Tap center of screen, it's off. I even use the screen off animation even though most of these come with TV off animation already.

OR, what about 'Button Saviour' also in the Market??
