Where are the power pads located on the logic board?

Does anybody know where the power pad is on a 15" 2010 Macbook Pro's logic board?

I suspect there is a problem with my Macbook Pro's top case power button due to it not powering on, however I would like to double check and see if the logic board is functioning or not so I'd like to jump start it.

(A picture would be a godsend right now.)

Thank you for reading.
