    I would like to know if someone could post a detailed picture or video on how to hotwire the power on button of a Macbook A1278 13inch

    I read somewhere you have to short pin 3 and 9?? Where exactly do I have to do that ?

    Thanks in advance for your precious help

    I have a Mid 2007 (white) MacBook, but the "pins 3 and 9" they referred to did work on mine: they're the pins where the keyboard connects to the motherboard (the pins you're looking for are actually on the motherboard, in a little rectangular connector). In the case of mine, they're the pins on the very left side of it, looking from the top. Hope this helps!
