Gadgets break. They all do sooner or later, and smartphones are no exception. As a matter of fact, phones can be exceptionally fragile – often a drop onto something harder than a carpet is enough to render them useless or severely damaged.
Even if a phone is never dropped, it might still fail at some point. You know, like when its power button stops functioning – when your phone is fine, but you just can't wake it up from standby.
Less frequent than having a broken power switch - damage or failure in the mainboard may be causing a power button not to operate in which case you may need a repair to the phone's mainboard.
