    Power switch funky

    For several weeks I've had a problem with the on/off switch. When I click it quickly to just turn off the creen, the whole thing shuts down and I have to do a cold reboot. Even then, it often takes 3-5 tries brfore it actually gives me the welcome screen with the opportunity to swipe my pattern password. I'll get a quick flicker of light, then a blank and black screen. When I finally get the log-in screen, the battery shows as fully, or mostly charged, so it isn't a battery issue. This morning the bugger won't start at all. No help with a 30 second hold on the power button, no help with holding down the power button and the volumn down button at the same time - nothing. Is it time to buy a new tablet, or is there a fix for my problem?
