I have a dell inspiron 13. My power light is constantly on, keyboard unresponsive, laptop turned off, side power and volume buttons unresponsive. I can turn the laptop on by taking it apart, unplugging battery and replugging. Bios startup then comes on screen, I restore settings and can use laptop. However whenever I turn it off or it goes to sleep the whole process starts all over again. I'm exhausted of trying things and repeating this over and over. Please help.

Somewhat strange symptoms you have there, but try replacing the CMOS battery with a brand new one. It's a CR2032 silver coin-type battery:
