Title:

Where are LED lights hidden and how to reset SMU switch internally

Text:

I have this mac that won't power up and wanted to at least check the LED lights and hit the internal power switch. However, the LEDs seem impossible to find, I read somewhere that they were hidden under the right speaker but I did not find them.

Does anyone know where to look for the LEDs and an internal SMU switch to try to force a restart on this model? This is the iSight so the insides are deliberately obfuscated.
