The power button on my cappy broke and I now can't get my phone to turn back on. I have tried taking the phone apart and cleaning it, but it still won't turn on. Is there a program (Odin?) that I can use to power the phone on through the USB port?

Can you boot into recovery and hit reboot device? Otherwise, flashing something with Odin will indeed cause the device to reboot.

You can also pull the battery, hold the volume buttons and put on the USB cable. Once in download mode, you can use Heimdall or adb to reboot the phone.

make/purchase a download mode jig

plug in for 1sec and pull out, it will power on
If you get DL mode, you left it in too long

I do this regularly with my broken spare when I play rom swap.
