>Waterspill< Battery needs to be disconnected at startup.

So i spilled some water in my macbook air 11".
After the spill the keyboard did not work.
Ordered a new keyboard of ebay and swapped it for
my broken one.

Lately ive been having some issues with the MBA.
It may suddely power down and wont power up,
if i put it to sleep it may have powered down
after a while and wont power up. If i power it down it
might not power up.

If i then open it up, disconnect the battery, stick in
the charger and press power button it will power up.
I then connect the powerbutton again and close it
back up, everything seems fine. I can turn it off an
back on again without any hassle but if i leave it for
a while i have to do the same procedure all over again.

Could this be a RAM issue?

Any thoughts?

You should reset the SMC, just google reset smc and the first hit or so brings you to Apple's site.

Reset SMC
