    Are we on the same page? We are talking about the button that is in the hinge of the laptop right? The right side.

Not to my knowledge...

But..try this..

If you are powered by ac, unplug it.

Then find the battery compartment.

Remove the battery.

Leave it out for a minimum of 1 minute, closer to 5.

Re-insert the battery.

Plug the laptop back in.

Push power.

Power button won't turn radio off

I've got the same problem. All other functionality is fine, however I can't turn the unit off once I've turned it on. I can use the power button to adjust volume, just not turn it off, so I have to unplug it to get it to turn off.
