Okay heres what I would do...
I would keep it.. Then just buy the next gen. of ipad whn it comes out. Get a nice silicone case that covers up the damage. You dont need the sleep/wake button. (Assuming your ipad is jailbroken) If so download SB Settings..You can the ues SBsettings to: Reboot, power off, lock, and put ur ipad into safe mode. I think this will be your best choice. Good luck either way.

Same thing happened to me . . . i get off the car and there goes my ipad slipping out of my very unsafe case (Now i know!). The sleep/wake button does not work consistently anymore. Where i am, I don't think it can be repaired.
But what I do now is to just put the Auto Lock at 2 minutes when I want the unit in sleep mode. (At times though, the sleep/wake button works . . . if I am lucky. Then again, I get worried of doing further damage since if I am not lucky enough then the unit keeps turning on and off.)
Try craigslist.. Sometimes there's people that fix screens for iphones and ipad. Im pretty sure you can find one of those guys that migt be able to fix the button too..
This is why I paid $129 at Best Buy for the Black Tie Protection. If I drop it, they replace it.
