Many users complain about a "power-button issue" which won't work anymore one day.
The reason seems to be a too high pressure on the power button while turning on or off the TPT. Impatient users seem to press a second or third time with higher pressure (and for a longer time) until the micro switch damages.
The power button hugs on a micro switch. In a quiet envorenment you even can hear a quietly "cklick", if you press gentle the power button.
To turn on the TPT you only need to press gentle the power button for about 2-3 seconds until the TPT vibrates for half a second.
Also press gentle the power button to turn off until the shut down dialog appears.

It is understood that we've had some buttons break and have taken action to improve - strengthen solder / attachment of the microswitch, adjust stroke minutely, etc to make it more robust. But , I think Mornsgrans advice is still fair - if we explain what is behind the outward button, new users may understand the mechanism is somewhat more delicate than it outwardly seems and treat it accordingly.
I agree the tablet should be able to hold up to daily use - no dispute there.
We aren't saying to only push on it with a feather.

Am using Powerful Switchman ... Its a free app.
After you have downloaded it, add it as a widget and use "Lock" feature. Press on the "Lock" it would then turn off your device and it works as a power switch.
