Unhappy Battery Removal- Ibook g4! I got water on my baby!

Hi all, this is my first post and I'm desperate! I spilled a tiny amount of water on my ibook (well, I'm assuming I got water in it because all of the sudden, my drink spilled and my laptop shut off about 2 seconds later) and I'm told that most people remove their battery, but I can't find how to do it anywhere. I know my keyboard was completely unaffected but I'm not 100% sure about where the water came in.

oh, and I tried turning the computer on again, and the display was black, but I pressed the num lock and caps lock keys, and they both lit up, and the computer started making that sound that it makes when it's working...(the high pitched humming noise). I didn't hear a start up noise, though.

Battery is on the bottom. Twist the screw with a coin or key to unlock the battery and you can pull it off.
