my power button no longer works, can i still turn my LG Optimus on?

my power/lock screen button no longer works, is there still a way to get it to power up by plugging it in, inserting the battery or something? thanks!

There is no way to power on the phone without using the power button.  After you power on the phone, you can root the phone and remap another button to be the power button, but you can't root a phone that is off.

Perhaps someone at the Sprint store can turn the phone on or replace the defective power button.
