I have a Cappy with Froyo 2.2 and faulty Power button, somehow I've managed to get it in "Android system recovery<3e>", but with non-functional Power button I can't get it out of this state. Any ideas?
Connecting it to USB, now, does nothing, but it worked before getting here.

Try using the phones capacitive buttons in recovery. Menu = Down, Home = Up, Back arrow = Back, Search = Select

1) Remove the battery.
2) Hold Vol +/- buttons
3) Put battery back

You should now be in Download mode, Remove battery, Put it back and don't touch any buttons.
If not try this other method

1) Remove the battery.
2) Plug the usb cable
3) Hold Vol +/-
4) Put battery back in

Unfortunately I'm still there: Android system recovery<3e> with 5 options:
reboot sys now;
reinstall packages;
delete all user data;
delete cache data;
format internal sd-card.
No possibility to select one of these with a broken Power button...

And if you hold "Vol - " only when putting the battery back in ? Other then that opening the phone to correct the issue sounds like your last chance. Look around here and Q&A and you should find more details on it your not the only one facing this issue.

I am guessing you have tried the reboot system now option, when i plug my cappy into a car charger it aways turns on rather than just charge if you can figure out what type of device would cause the behavior you can try that?
