Question about HP Slate 500 8.9 Tablet
I hope you found a solution months ago, but just in case:
My switch also broke a while back, and this is a common problem with the slate 500 due to the construction of the switch.
This should help:
My solution: remove what's left of the plastic switch (if anything) then use a long thin thing (LTT) (about 2 cm long) in the hole where the switch was. I use a squashed paper clip - someone else had a mini screwdriver, someone else the toothpick on their pen knife.
Put the LTT straight at the top of the switch hole and pull down, the same way you used to pull down on the power switch, then let go. The indicator light under the switch hole will blink 3 times quickly if you've successfully tripped the switch.
All the best!
