Im gonna try that. I found that they usb ports are probably dead as it will not power up the mac. I jumped the atx ps and and had it plugged into the mb and a red light comes on, so I know it will work, I think. Thanks for the help. I wont be able to try it for a couple of days since my main Mac went down last night. I will post that in another forum lol.
uhm... are you sure you can just plug in a ATX or B&W PSU into a Sawtooth board? i know that these PSUs are all a little bit different, so i would use it with caution. there are some very useful descriptions at xlr8yourmac about ATX-PSU conversions for the use in macs.
so far on all my similar tests, i was able use the keyboards powerbutton. or the button next to the PMU reset on the logicboard.
and i hope you have a real sawtooth board, not the gigabit ethernet which houses one additional connector for the 25V+ ADC port. apart from that they look very similar. but even the frontpanels from sawtooth and gigabit are not exchangeable. dunno why.
