[NTLK] MP130 Stiff Power Switch

I had a similar problem on my 120.  Had it for years and still have
it. I have had it apart, but found no reason beyond basic friction of
the plastic sliding pieces of the case. The switch itself with out the
lever required little to no force to activate. I never tried
lubrication of the plastic with anything for fear of causing more
problems, but I did train myself to be more gentle on the slide. More
force didn't make it any smoother, and soon I got used to the minimum
"touch" to power on. I also tend to use a fingernail rather than
finger. Fingers caused me to push in more than down, making it
stiffer. A light pinch with a index finger nail was much easier. Hope
that helps.
