    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?

    Well i tried that and for a couple of hours it looked promising, and then same thing happened again....
    Is there a terminal command for resetting SMC?

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

    Reset SMC

    Problem is that some of the buttons needed for resetting is not working...
    And i have not found a terminal command for resetting SMC.
