I damaged the power button cable while taking a part a hp envy. The casing needed a special tool to remove, and it took 2 hours! I was replacing a hard drive.

It's because HP want to you to have to return it to them and pay their repair prices.

Chances are that power button isn't crucial so just remove it. Most of them just press down on the micro switch which does the real work.

You can use pencil to press that micro switch. There is no power on top of it and a pencil is hard enough to turn the machine on and soft enough not to damage the stwitch.
