Power on pads for Mid 2012 MacBook Air 11" A1465

I found information for a 2010, 2011, and 2013 macbook air but I can't for the life of me locate the power pads for the mid 2012 macbook air 11". Here are photos and I hope a kind soul would be able to assist me.

I've only tried the flat head screwdriver method at this point but realized it wasn't a solder point. Yes, I'm an idiot =P

Here's a photo of the board and I just marked locations where I think it might be located based on what I've read.

I figure if powers on then I will replace the keyboard but if it doesnt then it would also involve the logicboard in which case I wouldn't bother fixing it.

See this Answer - your case is similar. Use care shorting random pads on the logic board, you can kill it.

If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.
