HTC Sprint Mogul- dropped it and power button stopped working

Hey guys (and gals)- I got a second hand mogul about 6 months ago and have been using it on Sprint. I upgraded the rom about a month ago via Sprints website with no real problems til today- I had the phone on my lap while getting out of my truck and the phone dropped onto the cement driveway. I saw it land on one corner of the phone. The battery did not fall out, but I think it rebooted itself.

It works fine, except the power button no longer works. When it goes into sleep mode, the only way to turn it back on is with a soft reset. The power button looks to be permanently depressed, but when I push it I can still feel it depress a bit more.

Two questions
1. can i set another button to work as the "power button"- going to "buttons" in the settings mode doesn't give me this option.
2. how hard is it to take this apart and maybe see if I broke something in the power button?

I don't have any insurance or warranty on this phone. I'm not a big computer or electronics guy, I've got much more experience taking apart cars and motorcycles then electronics.

Thanks for any input.

go under settings/System and go to KeyLock and change from "Lock all buttons except power button" to "Do not lock buttons" and you should be set, now any button will wake up your

Well if you want to take it apart and give it a look-see, I would watch this series of vids first...
