So not only is my power button not working, Im stuck in the bootloader screen and cant reboot since the power button isn't working. So how can I reboot my phone to at least get it back to being a phone? I took the back part of the phone off to see if I remove the power button and manually press it would that work, no luck there. Any suggestions?

*******Ok so I think I fixed the problem, turns out the power button just need a little bit of help. so if I mess with it to turn off and on it's works. Thanks for the responses, glad to know that when needed, help is there and will be given******

Also, sounds like I might need to be moving on from this phone to the M8. New phone??? well alright!!!!!!

Are you familiar with fastboot? Connect to a PC and use fastboot reboot.

OK UPDATE!!!
So I held the power button down for a min or so and it shut down and rebooted. But the power button still doesn't work.

Yea I know, it doesn't make sense if the power button doesn't work how did it reboot when I held it down for a min? Im trying to wrap my brain around that one too. lol
