I have a captivate with a broken power button and it was driving me nuts for the last 2 months since I couldnot wake up the phone if it went to lock screen. I tried no lock and other apps but they didnt work 100% of the time. Today I found this thread :
It is button remapper utility but it doesnot support captivate yet. However my only concern was to remap my volume buttons to power button.
This is how I did it :
Firstly, we'll need to pull the file that controls the buttons which is entitled "aries-keypad.kl" in "system/usr/keylayout".
To pull the file, connect your captivate and run:
Edit this pulled file like below :
Key 115 was VOLUME_UP while Key 114 was VOLUME_DOWN. I reassigned both to behave as POWER button.
After you're done with your edits, you'll need to save the file properly (NO .txt files!), and then you'll have to push it back to the phone.
Reboot your phone, and then check to see if the remapping works as expected. Your volume buttons should now behave as power button.
Simple and Effective!
