No, the only way to wake up your device is to content it to your USB cable :b

BlackR4in is right, if both are broken, you are stuck to waking up the device every single time with a plug in from a USB cable (that is plugged into a power source).

Fix one or the other, and then you can use assistive touch to emulate the other broken one ;)

Well if your device is Jailbroken you can try Activator provided that at least your Volume buttons ae working. You can use it to Lock/Unlock screen and even to Power Off or Respring your Device. :)  :D

Hope this helps.... :D :D
