Use this guide to remove the power/sleep button from your iPhone 5s.
This guide requires removing the battery. Removing the battery with the adhesive strips is the safest method, but also leaves your battery without adhesive. When replacing your battery, use a piece of double-sided tape to secure it. The battery is pretty tightly secured in the device, but the tape will keep it from rattling.
