Hey I've started to notice my power button on my Inc has started to stop working. What should I do? Can I open it up and fix it easily?

I had this same issue a while back, had to replace my dinc (yay insurance!)...

but, if you are willing to crack yours open, then most likely the cause is just dirt/dust buildup inside the power button contact area. It's an easy fix with a can of compressed air and a cotton swab.

Go ahead and download a screen lock widget too, and that might extend the life of your power button...
