I am what most would call computer illiterate and I am having an issue with my laptop. The power button on my vaio stopped working. I took it to a repair shop and the guy said he took it apart and cleaned it and now it works occasionaly. Usually on the 5th or 6th push of the power button it will come on. He also told me that I could bypass the power switch all together and use a paper clip to turn it on which he demonstrated for me and it came on just fine. He seemed to think there may be an issue with the motherboard but I just wasnt very impressed with the service so I wanted to get other opinions as well. Thank you for your time and please let me know what you think.

Sounds like you may have a lose connection. What more than likely happened is the botton either broke a little chunk off or just got worn down. However, taking apart a laptop is not something I woul suggest for a novice user. You may want to connacty Sony directly to see if they have heard of this problem already.
