The upper case of my (5,2) Macbook has stopped working so I'm not able to use the power button to turn it on. I'm currently using an external keyboard/mouse. Here's the problem- In order to tun it on, I have to short the power pads on the logic board which I think is pretty risky if not done properly. I wanna avoid the risk of making the mistake and frying the logic board.
under system preferences -> energy saver -> power adapter, I found "restart immediately after a power failure"
So if there is a "power failure', I should theoretically be able to turn the mac on the next time I plug in the magsafe adapter, right?
But what counts as a power failure? Is just taking the battery out while the magsafe adapter is still attached considered a power failure?
