Need help locating and jumping power connector (no top case/button)

I've got a 17" Aluminum Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro, well most of one anyway. The case is broken up pretty badly and the top case, keyboard, trackpad, and power button are missing. I've been told it still boots (MB and LCD are intact and everything is still attached) but I can't figure out how to jump the power switch connection on the MB, or even where it is. Can anybody help?

I have a PB 15" alu with the top case removed and i can see two contact points on the logic board with an inscription POWER BUTTON written aside of the contact points. On the PB the contact points are located near the top case cable connector. Look carefully on the logic board to find the contact points or maybe someone here can indicate where exactly they are located.

I was looking for an answer for this OP myself and all I find is the connection for the top case. I would have no ides which two pins were the power switch--perhaps you can tell. Ralph

Awesome! It is the third pair of pins (from the left). I jumped them with a fork and all is well. Thanks!

Would this work on a mid2009 Macbook Pro A1278? If so, where might i find the two pins on that motherboard, it looks completely different!

Derek -

It's at the end of the ribbon cable that connects the keyboard/trackpad skin. The two leads for the power button will be somewhere along that ribbon - jump each pair with a paper clip until you get the right one. And you needn't worry about shorting anything out if you hit the 'wrong' pins. At least not along that connector...
