[Q] Power up GNEX from PC?

Hello all, long-time lurker first post.
I bought my Verizon GNEX on the day it came out and have loved it since.
Yesterday the power button stopped working.
I tried the method of removing the battery, plugging into PC, then putting the battery back in but no dice.
So, now the phone is powered down and I can't turn it on with the bad power button.

Is there a way to power up the GNEX from a PC?

The phone is on 4.4.3 with an older Vanir ROM that has been running stable for a few months at least.
Any help you can give is appreciated.
Thanks!

If you have already enable developper option, yes, you can power up it by pc, using adb, for detail, you can search adb at this forum,

There is a thread for this. Saw it the other day. It's an older one but in said thread several people have reported ways that work for some.
In short plug the charger in. Wait for the lightning battery icon then pull the charger. It takes several attempts but it's worth a try and a search.

Also haveing debugging on isn't going to make a difference because it's off... And there are no adb commands to turn on your device

Thank you.
I have searched and tried that technique and another where you take the battery out of the phone. plug it into your USB (without battery) wait for computer to beep. Put the battery back into your phone.
I have also disassembled the phone and checked the contacts for the power button (they looked good).
So far , no dice.
Thanks again
