Default [Q] Can enter bootload but nothing else.

So recently my phone went into Deep Hibernation so I plugged it into a charger and held down Power, Volume down.

I managed to get into the boot loader screen but only the volume keys are responsive to select options but the power button is unresponsive.

I have no idea on how to start the phone or turn it off anymore, what can I do?

Is your bootloader unlocked. If it is use fastboot reboot. That should boot your device

Well I have no idea if it's in Fastboot or not. Currently the phone is stuck in the mode where there's an arrow pointing towards the power button and 2 white arrows with representation to the volume buttons. I think it's in Fastboot right now but again, the power button isn't working at all to select anything.

I'm not too familiar with these terms. All I know is that I have the phone unlocked and Paranoid Android installed.

Sounds like you're in fastboot mode. From a command prompt on your pc and with the usb cable plugged between your phone and the pc, type fastboot reboot. It should boot your device. Hopefully that will clear what ever is causing your power button not to work

Well I managed to reboot it and get back phone's home screen. Though I still have the issue of the fact that my lock/power button is completely busted and/or unresponsive.

Should I just install an app that will serve as an alternative to the power button? By now my Warranty would've already expired and I would have no way of getting it repaired. Are there checks I can make to see whether or not it's a software or hardware fault?

My best guess is it's a hardware issue. A local cell phone repair shop can put in a new power button without a lot of cost.
