No. You need to replace the button with the same or a 'normally open momentary contact button' that is not too easily pressed in error. The original button (under the physical plastic button you actually press) would be the best to use though it is probably soldered onto the motherboard so unless you have serious soldering experience on circuit boards, you should see a pro for this.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
