Short answer... No. Use the POWER button. The clue's in the title of the button.... That's what it's for!!!!

To switch down the device when the power-off button doesn't work properly, just long-press simultaneously both the power-off and volume-down buttons. Worked for me on Lumia 720, so hopefully will work for you too. That seems to be a higher-level power off. Try twice if it doesn't work at first attempt. Hope this helps.

An app to do shut down would be BAD if as you stated the power button doesn't work. How would you ever turn it back on?

An app that allowed reboot however would be advisable, if such existed.

@riiidaa: Have you failed to notice that the phone automatically turns on when plugged into power?

There are apps that will reboot, but if you want to save battery by turning the phone off (with the caveat that yeah, you won't be able to turn it on again until you get to a power cable, which does sort of limit the usefulness) it's *probably* possible for an app to do this, actually. It doesn't require any terribly special permissions on Windows, at least normally. On the phone there is an ID_CAP_BUILTIN_SHUTDOWN which says it lets you "Shutdown or reboot the system" though, so maybe it's only possible for capability-unlocked phones.
