I am having this exact same issue with an iPad 2. Tomorrow morning I am going to try a new cable to see if that fixes it.

or just a bad cable, what happens a lot. So try to get another and replace it.

What you could do is jailbreak your device and use activator to lock your screen.

hi there, i'm having the same issue... replaced screen and power/volume flex all buttons work fine, exept the powerbutton, works only when you turn the divice on or off, screenlock doesn't work even assistif touch doesn't work to lock the screen... the only possibility in my case would be the lcd board i think... I did not really toucht the lcd board because im really carefull with it butt is it possible to damage it when cutting the sticker that holds the connection from the power/volume flex ?

thx
