Title:

How to connect power button directly to logic board?

Text:

Hi everyone!

First of all i'd like to apologize for my bad english. It's not my native language.

So here's the problem:

I have an A1278 unibody macbook with cracked display glass and keyboard, spilled with coffe. Since i got it almost for free (4 beers), i've teared it down and threw it to the far shelf till better times.

Since "better times" came" i decided to make an imac-like desktop machine out of these parts.

And the only problem i faced so far, is that the power button is connected to keyboard. But i need it to be connected directly to logic board.

So i would be gratefull for the keyboard ribbon cable pinout or any suggestions!

Thanks!
