Default Strange power and home button behavior

Long pressing the power button produces a menu with only the power off option; the other options (airplane mode, etc.) dissapeared a few days back. The Home buttons in the keyboard and screen are not working neither for short nor long presses, though they do give haptic feedback when touched. I have a rooted backflip with 2.1 in México. A few days ago I got a missing SIM card message that didn't go away by rebooting, until I turned the phone off, took the sim card out, cleaned it with alcohol and put it back in. The message went away, but then the strange behavior started. I haven't tried a reset, as I don't know how to save/restore my apps (some are in the SD). Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks. I can't be sure, as the power button didn't produce the menu with the flight mode option. Anyway, it was a long time ago and I solved the problem by reinstalling the system. I guess that the culprit was links2sd (I was previously unaware that I had flashed a system that already had a2sd) as I did'nt re-install it and the phone has been behaving much better.
