How to fix some mysterious problems.

I do not know why my post got removed, but i hope this is the correct way to post without getting removed this time.

Iphone 5 version 7.0.4

Hi, So there was a point where everything was working fine. I do not know when or how it happened, but now my power button seems to get delayed.

I try pressing power button and it wont " sleep" itll be like i wasnt pressing it at all.

After pressing it in different ways, itll finally close go to sleep.

Also, when i close all the applications, it will also go to sleep faster, but still delayed and after pressing it by holding the power button down, waiting, pressing it again.. there isnt a conclusive way to get it to sleep, but pretty much molesting it certain ways.

I can still press and hold it for it to turn off, but i would also have to press it a certain way before it will do that.

Does anyone have any idea or clue as to how to fix or what is causing it ?

I would prefer not having to reformat it =l

Side question: Ever since ive started jailbreaking, i never figured out how to update my phone without losing everything. when i back up all my things onto my computer, what settings should i make sure are there so that i do not lose anything except for the jailbreak stuff. ( such as contacts, photos, etc)

Enter safemode (no substrate mode) if it still dies it it's a hardware issue so see a repair shop ... Sounds like hardware to me. If it doesn't do it in safemode it's a tweak .... Then list all sources/repos and tweaks.

Also please use the add a comment tab unless answering the original question.

As far as back up goes its simple ... Connect to iTunes and hit backup. There are no settings. Never hit update either always use restore (tab next to update) if iTunes asks to backup/download apps whilst backing up .... Say yes.

Most like;y your power button is pushed further inside the iPhone check it though you might need to replace it
