  • Laptop power button and Carnetix P1900

    Hi guys,
    I've just dismantled my Sony Vaio to get access to the power button to solder on the ACPI leads but can't work out which of the 4 pins to attach the 2 leads to? I remember seeing a guide somewhere online but cant find it anywhere now. Has anyone got any ideas?
    Cheers,
    Mike

          Thanks for the picture... And for those who might be wondering, it doesnt matter which foot you solder to (as there are four) just has to be one on each side of the button (to complete the circuit)
