    My power button doesn't work, and my phone happened to die. Does anyone know any solutions? Other than getting it fixed because I don't have the time right now. :)

    There are apps that will turn the phone off, but you can't turn it back on without the power switch. If it died, it's off. Plug in the charger and let it fully charge. Then, when you have the time to replace the power switch, at least you'll have a usable battery. (Leaving it fully discharged for a while will turn it into hazardous waste.)

    Plug in the charger, let it charge for a few minutes, then disconnect the charger and let the phone turn off.
    Now plug the charger back in, now when you switch on the charger keep your home button pressed, this will enter the phone in the recovery mode, when the recovery mode is open use the volume controls to move the selector up/down and press the home button on the option 'reboot to system', your phone will reboot back to your homescreen.
    No power button required.

    This is for ACE S5830 only, incase you own an S5830i keep the home button and the 'volume up' button pressed to enter recovery mode.

    Thank you so much, but i tried this and it told me, I needed my power button to select. I tried it with my home button but it didn't work.... :/

    Really? are you sure?
    I have been using ace for 3 years now and the select function is done by the home button in the recovery menu, the power button is used as a 'back' button to come out of a sub menu in the recovery.
    Try again, i am sure you are doing something wrong.
    I have tried this trick several times before, i have given this trick to other ace users before and it has always worked.
