iBook G4 keyboard question

I just bought a nice 12-inch iBook G4 off eBay. Looks and works brand new, with one exception.... the keyboard seems a little loose. Both the left and right tabs are fine, but it looks to me as if there should be a tab next to the num lock key, maybe where the light is. There looks like a slot right behind that, but there is no tab on my keyboard, so I am wondering if it is broken off. Can someone with an iBook let me know if I am on the right track? Thanks.

Location: Texas, unfortunately.
There should be a tab to the left of the numlock key with a green LED in a plastic "screw" in it that lights up when numlock is activated.

Thanks, Cassie. That's what I figured.... I seem to be missing the screw. The light is there, but not the screw.

Considering I paid $200 for this, with an Airport card, and it looks brand new, I won't complain too much about it.

But now I will need to see if I can find one of those screws somewhere....
