    No, there's no way to force it on without the power button. If it's on, you can schedule a time to automatically boot up every day, but you have to have it on to be able to set the schedule. Take it to Apple and have them check it out. They won't charge to tell you what the problem is. Perhaps its something simple and inexpensive to fix.

    Found this if your very brave, its video depicting how to hot wire your MBP.
