Or somehow the button is not aligned properly. You would need to open the device and look.

If it is just for waking and sleeping, have you enabled the screenshot mode? This is done by adding "Screenshots=true" to the config file. And there is a way to do this using patches or NickelMenu. If so, the power button will be used to take a screen shot rather than wake/sleep/power off. Removing that line, or changing it to "Screenshots=false" or one of the other methods, will fix this.
Yes, the power switch is fine, if the device is active, press the switch can put it to sleep mode, press again 3-5s later also can wake it up, but if leaving it longer in sleep mode, the switch is useless
Anyway, I check the config file, the screenshots option is not there, so I think the file is ok.
