MacTester57's HemiMac G4
I believe, that it stays on. Not really an issue in my eyes. The Hemi is not able to run at the moment, because the finalizing of the bottom plate wiring is in progress...MacTester, do your backlights stay on or go out when only display sleep (not full system sleep) is activated?
Removing the border on the USB sockets to allow to lower them into the original holes:
Fixing the USB sockets with hot glue and a zip tie. No difference to the original condition will be visible from the outside:
The routed cables on the bottom plate. Everything must be routed very clean and well thought to allow the assembly of the bottom plate. The following modules will be mounted to the bottom of the DVD drive: BT, chime sound module, sleep- & PSU controller (not yet mounted on this picture). The USB hub is mounted to a pvc frame, which is fixed with two of the original logicboard screws. It uses the last available gap between the optical drive and the original chime speaker:
The bottom plate will fit! Hope, that the signal strength of the BT module will be good enough through the plastic darning in the outer bottom shell:
Now I will have to wait for the 90° angle 2.54mm pins for the sleep controller...
