    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
