    Hi Norton - welcome to the forum! :)

    Now my initial response would be to tell you to 'Reset' the iPad, BUT the statement "all dead I've replaced the ribbon cable....' needs further explanation - seems like you need to provide us w/ further details?

    The button that you use for turning off your iPad is the sleep button.

    Hi again Norton - you still have not discussed the issue about the 'ribbon cable' - I'm assuming that you replaced the power/volume control cable w/one similar to that shown in the pic below - correct? The photo is from Amazon HERE - in reading the comments there, this is not an 'easy' repair - do you feel the issue relates to a faulty replacement? If so, you likely have to try again or resort to a local shop w/ expertise in this area or an Apple store - good luck - :)
