How to turn off phone when WSoD

I have an iPhone 3GS with a non-working home button and a white screen of death (WSoD).

Is there any way to turn the phone off so I can continue working on it?

You may have to disconnect the battery from the motherboard. Unscrewing the two screws at the bottom and letting the motherboard up should disconnect it and power it off.

I read another forum here and it says also one can let the battery just drain out but that's a long process.

Luckily the home button seems to be working again... though, I appreciate your help,

Thank you.
