    there are 2 metal contacts below the fan (and above the Combo/SuperDrive cable) that show a power symbol. It's an O with a line going down the top. take a flathead screwdriver and place it over those 2 metal leads to start it without the top case

    it may have a printed "Pwr btn" instead of the symbol, or something similar. It's in tiny white font and you may have to do some searching for it
