I've had my Desire since mid-Feb, so about 6-7 weeks. Today suddenly the physical power button that I usually press to turn the screen on/off stopped working, and the only way to activate the screen is to plug in the charger. This is obviously extremely inconvenient! Any thoughts?

Try turning the phone off (remove the battery if necessary) and then turn it on again. 

If it doesn't turn on after you press the button, the button is indeed broken and the phone will need to be repaired. 
If it does turn on, it was a software error.  In that case I'd just keep in mind that it can happen again.  If it does happen again, we'll need to resort to more drastic solutions (a factory reset being the most likely candidate).

So I removed the battery, put it back in, and then it turned itself on as soon as the battery was in. The button still doesn't work... How could it have gotten broken?

And then, as randomly as it stopped working, it started to work again a few minutes ago... Very strange...

Stange indeed.  Keep an eye on it and report back if it happens again.  Did it feel different when pressing it? 

Perhaps the button itself was stuck in the down position, as it shouldn't turn on when you re-insert the battery.  If that's the case, you might be able to feel a difference in how it feels.  Hence my question.
