A project log for Macbook to mini-desktop conversion

I'm converting an old 2009 macbook pro to a mini linux desktop.

Version 1 of the motherboard sled only considered mounting the main board, so the wifi and ssd are loose for now.  I soldered some wires to two pads on the motherboard that when shorted turn on the machine.  I'm using a toggle switch for now, but will replace it with some other more integrated switch when I design the enclosure.
