Step 5: Adding an External On/Off Switch to the Laptop

The display on this laptop no longer worked so this was a good use for it. I needed to be able to turn on and off the laptop though without opening the lid since the suitcase sits on top of it.

For this, an external momentary switch was wired to the internal on/off switch and then glued on with epoxy.
Nice and It is based on magic mirror interactive room already saw before. <br>You are really creative nice job!! I am a fan!!!
Fun. But the switches break the magic.<br />
Magic suitcase on my desk, give me the answer to this test.
Where do you get the Magic mirror program ?<br />
Hi, its a program I&nbsp;wrote<br />
&nbsp;That is very, very odd...
&nbsp;I think it's pretty cool.
