Default Mod for power through volume button

Hey guys,
My friend spilled grand marnier on phone and now my power button doesn't work. I'm on a ROM that doesn't have screen wake by volume buttons, but is there a mod to put this in, or an app to use instead? I'm afraid to flash without a working power button and my wife's upgrade is in march so I'll have to tough it out till she gets her new phone and I take my incredible back. Thanks to anyone with any suggestions. I greatly appreciate it.

Something similar happened to me when it rained and the phone got drenched. The safest route is to use a hair dryer near the power button wait for it to dry out from the inside then try again. The contact button in the power strip doesn't work when wet.

Yeah I was going to but grand mariner is really syrupy and I think that's the major problem. This has been a problem for the past couple weeks, and been getting progressively worse. Now it won't work at all. Thanks though for the suggestion.

Try cleaning the contact off with a qtip and some rubbing alcohol

Changing Rom's can also be an option.

But you can also try using many apps to turn screen on or off by touching screen or waving hand over proximity sensor.

Eg.
I use:
PGM aka touch control:
Wake screen up with double tap or swipe up like BB10.

Screen off:
Program pie button to turn off screen.
