Question about Computers & Internet
You might get lucky ( very lucky ) if you power off the monitor, unplug it from the wall socket, and spray some PURE DENATURED ALCOHOL into the crevices around the power button. This might work if the stuck position is caused by dirty fingers from children or a dust laden environment
DO NOT USE any water based product in this endeavor, else you will be suffering far more then a stuck button.
After application of alcohol, let the monitor dry out for at least 10 minutes ( some would say that is to long but we are trying to be safe here ), then try physically clicking the power button. With luck your fingers will notice a small difference in how the button reacts to pressure. This procedure may have to be repeated a couple to times before the button becomes fully operational again.
Now if the button is physically bad ( can no longer be responsive to pressure ), only a qualified technician should try to replace it. With most of the monitors I have dealt with it was simply to difficult to get into the monitor to make it worth my while to internally troubleshoot them.
