Toshiba satellite m115-s3094
model number psmb0u-015007

Yeah, i've played inside a few laptops but they are too craped up and far too "propriety" made. Too hard to get the proper parts

So you just want to shut the machine off immediately? Sure, there's an easy way to do, but it's all on you as to what it'll do to that poor hard disk.

Don't install a battery on the machine - if it's in a car, you won't need one anyway.

Go to radioshack and pick up a male and female connector matching the one on your PSU and power plug on the notebook. Also get a SPST switch.

Wire the switch up in between the connectors, plug in, and there you go. Flipping the switch cuts off the PSU. No power for computer.
