    Hi,
    Unfortunately I broke my macbook unibody (model A1278... this), i initially tried to sell pieces but i changed my mind. I decided to create a mediabox.
    When i disassembled the MacBook i realized that the power button is connected to the keyboard ... this is a problem for me because i will not put the keyboard in mediabox. I must find a way to power on the macbook without the keyboard :D

    This is the key for the power on

    This photo shows a closeup of two pins on the main logic board, right by the trackpad connector, that are used to power on the computer. If you short these pins out with a small conductive device like the tip of a flathead screwdriver, the computer will receive the signal to power on.

    Let us know how it goes!
