Power button on/off
I was just given a WiFi iPad 2 and had it fixed up after being dropped and broken. Everything has been replaced and fixed except for the power button that had the internal ribbon torn. So basically I cannot power off/power on my iPad or put it to sleep mode without letting it screen time out. My question is, is there any app out there I can use to power it off without jailbreaking? So far the only thing I have come up with is to plug it into the computer and use a program to enter and exit recovery mode. Are there any other options available to power on/off the iPad without the power button? It seems stupid, but I am new to this and curious.

You can enable the AssistiveTouch feature.
It places a faint dot on you screen that can be moved around. In essence it a virtual home button. When you click it, one of the icons that appears is "Device" and if you click it you can Lock Your Device.
I used it all the time because I rather press it than the home button.
Others don't care - they feel annoying.
