power button broken, cant unlock phone with fingerprint or pattern

Please help

MyMotorola G5 plus phone is less than 2 years old. My power off button has broken.

I haven't allowed the phone to power off at all as I didn't know how to get into the phone.  Now I find that I can't unlock/lock my phone with the fingerprint because the swipe pattern comes up. when I swipe the correct pattern, the screen goes blank then it returns asking me for the pattern again

there is a message that says for security reasons I have to use the pattern every 72 hours.. 

how can I get into my phone?

many thanks

I am not sure but dont phones mount to laptop OS when connected over USB automatically by themselves?

Maybe just do that and take drive image of the phone over adb via usb and then give the phone the Hillary hammer?
