    Is the face plate properly attached?
    Just take it off and look if nothing is stuck.

    I fear that the RF module is damaged (no working powerbutton) the DVD drive could also have a malfunctioning open/close circuit.
    If I may ask, how old is the phatty?
    If it's one from 2005-2007, it's hardly worth fixing it as their RRoD machines anyway.

    It is indeed odd but eh, if it ain't broke, dun fix it xd

    I'd still go for removing the faceplate and checking for dust of misalignment or whatev.

    You'll have to use the exact same drive and swap the PCB boards or flash the DVD keys to another drive ;]

    DVD drives are paired to the 360 so swapping it won't work.
    Flashing or swapping PCB's is the only option.

    If that doesn't work then the button could be lose, resoldering would help probably.
    As for the RF board, replacing it could work
