Hi.. I bought a late 2011 MB Pro with a marked/damaged keyboard cable. It also wouldnt power on from the power button, and would only turn on with battery removed and when connecting power supply. Otherwise, it runs great. So i installed the board (which looks very clean) into a spare bottom case, and the keyboard works fine, but i'll be d**d - the power button issue is the same. Additionally, touching the power pads to power on does not work either. Now this is where it gets weird. The EMC of the board doesn't correspond to a 13" late 2011 MB Pro. SMC: 1.68f99 On the Apple page, https://support.apple.com/en-au/HT201518 you can see the latest SMC is MacBook Pro (13-inch, Late 2011) MacBookPro8,1 MBP81.0047.2AB (2015-001) 1.68f98 (SMC 1.5) and my SMC 1.68f99 is only for the 15" and 17" models. Also, downloading the late 13" Pro SMC and unpacking it using xar... there does not appear to be any MB13 smcs at all. Maybe someone has some inside knowledge. I think this is a mismatched SMC issue. And Apple does not provide anyway to revert SMC of course. I have read there may be some crazy way to do it, ... I have already booted with rEFIt to try and do a SMC reset (to no avail) but getting the correct SMC file is a little scary.
