    I have an iPhone 5 IOS 8.1, my wake/sleep button stopped working a couple weeks ago. Today I did a complete upgrade on Cydia, when it finished the iPhone did not reboot, it just exited the Cydia app. Now I can't turn it on at all, even if I connect to my PC, it can not be seen, by my pc or itunes. I can not do a hard reset because my wake/sleep button does not work. What can I do to fix this, very urgent.

    Absolutely nothing, until you get the power button fixed. Period!

    Download "tinyumbrella", install it on your computer, connect your iPhone to your computer. Run tinyumbrella to kick it out of whatever mode the iPhone is. Certainly a "reboot loop mode" which keep the screen completely dark as if the device is dead.
    Now if you are on iOS 8, I think tinyumbrella won't be able to help you as it's not yet updated for iOS 8 but 7 and bellow.
