How to turn off an iPhone 3GS without using the power-button?

Text:

Hello there,
This is my first post here, so I apologize in advance if I missed something. It's a rather practical question.
-Is there a way to turn off the Iphone (3GS in my case) without using the power button? The button works physical - i can press it (feels normally) - but to no effect. Since I don't want to open it while it is still powered on so I wonder if there is an alternative to waiting until the battery runs out and the phone turns off by itself.

Thanks,
