send it to mobiletechvideos.com - they will fix it.
Or flash SearchAsPowerButton MOD along with Volume wake ROM - my ROM ICS supports it.

Wondering if anybody knows any places in Canada (GTA) where they might replace these? Sending it in to the states is a little expensive when considering shipping. =(

Yeah I have some issues with mine. It'll sometimes not lock the phone and it'll register as being held down instead. It's not too serious for me, though.

Just open up your phone and clean the dip switch with some rubbing alcohol, not to much but do it a couple of times. Make sure to let it dry before you turn it back on.

This fixed mine.

That worked for me as well. When I bought my phone, the power button was so sensitive that even the slightest amount of pressure on it would cause it to boot or turn the screen off. I was going to return the phone, but a few minutes work with alcohol and a Q-tip saved me the hassle.
