Did you follow a guide? Try this one: iPhone 4S Power Button Replacement

Make sure to put the powerbutton the right way. With the "hinged" pointing down

Maybe the button on the flexcable have moved a bit?

I suggest and prefer if you use a small piece of paper and fix it under the round shaped sleep button which does the trick for me most of the times instead of replacing buttons and cables.

How exactly does the paper go in? Are you putting it between the internal button and the mounting bracket, or between the internal button and the external button?
