Help finding the Power Icon on my Logic Board.

My Late 2008 MacBook Pro does not power up on AC power or battery. This has happened to me in the past when it has gone to sleep and the battery has ran out. In the past I've been able to remove the battery and get it turned on by just using the AC power. This time that doesn't seem to be working.

I've read several posts about the booting directly from the logic board. I just cant seem to find the spot on my logic board. Does anyone have photos or can tell me where to look? Late 2008 MacBook Pro.

Michael, I think you are looking for the power pads. " If button does not work, locate pads R5015 on logic board just to right of IR/sleep cable. Short pads to power up logic board. If power on key is stuck, keyboard cable must be disconnected for R5015 to work." check the attached image for a location. Look for the light blue rectangle, bottom left in the image. Not the greatest image, but only have limited resources right now. Hope this helps, good luck.

That is what I was looking for. Unfortunately it didn't get it to start up.
