Can I repair my Power Button after dropping the device?

Hi,

Some times ago my iPad dropped to the floor.

My iPad Power button is now partly broken. It still works but I have to press it twice or so. And sometimes when I'm using my iPad the iPad goes randomly into standby. I found out that it happens by pressing the upper right part of the screen, too.

The back metal cover of my iPad is now slightly bent by 1-2 mm in the upper left corner (under the power button).

Could someone help me? If you need photos tell me.

My daughter hit a table with her iPad and the power button completely stopped working. What I did to fix it is; I released some pressure off the power button. From the first try, the power button is working again as it used to. You need to place your iPad down, screen facing up. Take straight screwdriver and gently push on the bent area out of iPad frame. I hope it works for you.
