This magnet when the screen is closed lays on the touch pad behind which is a magnetic sensor that puts the computer to sleep.
I did not know this when i took the screen apart and just took it off and taped it on my new screen in the middle where it supposedly was on the old one. But its actually a very specific spot.
So props to apple for a very ingenious solution to a cool problem.
Suck that it doesnt sleep with the closed lid forcing me to press sleep in the system. No biggie really just kinda sucks to find out now.
Im not gonna split the panel again, its only designed to be put together not taken apart and if I split it again im afraid it wont come together at all and the chances me damaging the new LCD screen are very high.
