Default Laptop Hard Drives

Those little 2.5 inch ones, I've noticed they dont have a power connector, only an IDE connector. How do they get power? I heard IDE doesn't have a power line ?

It supplies power, I don't know how but it does since there's no other connection. Just load into the caddy, slide it in, and then replace the screws.
