If the phone boots automatically when you insert the battery that sounds like the power button is broken to me.

But there is no any thing happened to it, i mean it place in my drowse every time except when i used it. I have done factory reset to see either it is software problem but same that the button is not responsive.

If the button does not respond at all it's probably hardware. May just have worn out. Can you use it to turn the screen off when you are booted? If not then that really would sound like a broken button, in which case a repair is the only actual fix.

If you install WidgetLocker you can use that to let you wake the screen using other buttons. That might give you a work-around.

^^^^^^^ Worked a treat for me!! Thanks!!

It took two attempts of draining the battery, the second time it was left for around 3ish hours while drained. I read on another thread there can be residual static charges that affect the switch. The phone behaved a little weird at first ie. Like the power button was activating by itself, trying to lock the phone and turn it off etc. But shortly after this I have full functionality back. Happy days!
