Power Button pads on logic board

With the top case removed, the power button is disconnected. Instead of having to reconnect the top case to turn on the system, there are two pads on the logic board that can be shorted across (with a tool like a flat blade screwdriver) to act as the power button.

These pads are located near the lower edge of the logic board between the RAM slots and the upper left corner of the optical drive. The two pads are separated with a horizontal white line and bracketed by another line that leads to the marker "PWR." See photo below with magnified inset.
