Inspiron E1405 Magnetic Hibernation Switch where?

While fixing my friends laptop (the lid hinge broke, nothing a little J B Weld couldn't fix), a little rectangle shaped magnet fell out. After some research I discovered that the magnet is actually the hibernation switch that puts the laptop to sleep when the lid is closed.

Thanks, but that's my post on the dell forum. Of all the things not to find on the internet...

Sorry if that was unclear.

Dell appears to not document this part. It looks like someone that needs the information needs to call Dell and ask them to fix that.
