My power on button was broken where the part you depress was detached from the little circuit board because the plastic holder was broke. Rather than buy a new switch assembly I simply lined everything up in the case and use a liberal amount of RTV to hold everything in place. The RTV is flexible enough to allow the plunger to depress the switch on the board and then spring back into place. It has work great this way since I fixed it six months ago.

I need a similar or identical part for my Sony VGN-TT130N notebook. Where can I find and purchase this power button assembly?
