    While my iPad was in a bag, I forgot that it was in there and a heavier bag got set on top of it. Anyway, now the aluminum around the power button is bent, and the button only works sometimes and often gets stuck down. I'm wondering if there is any way to fix this so if someone could help I'd appreciate it.

    A crude way to fix it is run an exacto blade around the edges to free it. That's how I fixed my iPhone 2g way back when for the same problem except I dropped it on that corner.
