    521 is slighty larger than the 520 so the shells will not fit.

    What I would do is remove the 521 shell, and check the power button on the shell iself. is just a small piece of plastic make sure that it is connected properly and place correctly. Sometimes it does comes loose.

    The rubber piece on the back of the button may be out of place. So removing and reseating the cover may help.

    that is why you should check and make sure that the button on the cover are in correct position.

    Make sure battery is seated properly has well.

    Does yours phone not wake up and respond when pressing the button or from lockscreen?

    It does, but sometimes I have to push hard

    The volume bottoms and the camera button are perfect it's just the power bottom that feels kind of "mushy"

    I too am having this problem. Started happening a couple weeks ago. I took off the shell and tried to set it in, thinking something was off(perhaps I dropped it and don't recall, or bumped it while in my pocket). Has anyone discovered a fix and/or cause for this?

    Same here. I have to hit the switch numerous times before it works. Same thing with the Tap to Open feature.

    What happens is the soldering breaks or becomes loose around the power button due to repeated use. The only fix is to take the phone apart and resolder. Or use double tap.

    My gf's phone does this. I took the case and back cover off and tried to use the button directly...Sort of have to push it in and downward for it to work. She's using an app pinned to the start menu/homescreen that locks the phone and she uses double tap to unlock.

    If you guys can't seem to find a solution for fixing the button, just turn on Double Tap to wake, under TOUCH settings (you may need to update your settings)

    My wife's 521 has been having trouble with this. Has anyone found any apps to lock the screen? (I keep finding just apps to customize your lockscreen.)

    That isn't an option on my touch menu. I am having the same issue. I have "solved" it by not letting it go to sleep...and run the battery down quickly.
    I am not sure how to update settings, apart from the normal software updates. ???
