    The way you can test this is to use a digital multimeter and check for continuity across the pins, then press the button and see if you get continuity. If you do, those are the pins.

    for power would a charger that plugs into the cigarette lighter work? or would it not have enough power/be dangerous? i am going to take the laptop out everyday and charge it during the night and just need something to charge it if i absolutely need it.

    it should work ok. if you are going to use a inverter, and then use the power cord that came with the laptop, you might run into noise issues from the inverter-- but the only way to know would be to try it and if you do have noise problems, look at solutions at that point
