If you have a problem with your power button or upper case assembly then the computer may not start. I would remove the top case with this guide:

MacBook Pro 15" Core 2 Duo Models A1226 and A1260 Upper Case Replacement

and look at the connector where the keyboard connects to the logic board. If you take a small flat heat screwdriver that is as wide as the connector going vertically from the front and gently move it side to side in the logic board connector it will start. The unibody MacBook Pros have a jumper on the bottom but this method is the fastest way that I have found to do it on the non-unibody models. If you do it gently then there will be no problem. This is how I test to see if the MacBook Pros have an upper case issue or a logic board one. Can you charge the computer?

Just the normal one on the case and a jumper inside (but that's for testing not normal everyday use).
