Turning on a Powermac G3 Beige All in one,

I just picked up a Power Macintosh G3 all in one. It has a wireless keyboard without a power button. I was wondering if there was a way to turn the machine without the power button.
I know about the simulating power on with the pins on the PSU. But I don't know which pin on the mac is the power on pin. If anyone could give me a diagram of the pin-outs for that PSU I would really appreciate that. Please respond if you can give me any help.

ADB switch

You can add a momentary switch off of the ADB keyboard connector to initiate power-on. Short ADB pin 2 to ground.

ADB wiki entry

...and don't do 'bump' posts. Not everyone is online every waking moment of the day to be at your service.

I'll try

I didn't mean to bump post, I was testing something and I don't know how to delete posts. So how do I know which one is pin 2?
