Default [Q] Broken power button

Hi guys !

My power button just broke on my SGS GT I9000, I was able to change the lock button from power button to volume up button. But when my phone is off, I can't turn it on back without putting it on download mode and flashing the kernel to force a reboot.

Is there a way to rebind the power up button on an other button when the phone is off ?

Thanks for any help

Thanks but that's not really helpfull, because I'vre already did that, and my volume up buttons is just recognize as power/lock button when my phone is on, but not when my phone is off.

I did it in the aries-keypad.kl file in the keylayout folder. Maybe I have to do it in an other file ?

Yes I've tried, but it says that my phone isn't compatible. I've download the galaxy S version, and it says the same. I think I'll have to repair the button. Any idea about the price ?
