The power button on my macbook air 2015 is not functional and I don't have the correct screwdriver to open the back up and take out the battery. Is it possible to turn the laptop on without having to open the back up?

    Have you tried using one of those Apple USB keyboards that have a power switch? – voices Oct 11 '15 at 0:10

    Pretty sure it works on iMacs. Might be worth a shot. – voices Oct 12 '15 at 13:07

No. You will want to keep it from discharging enough once you power it on if you can't repair the hardware switch.
