Another one of these I know. I was startled from sleep on Wednesday awaking and knocking over a cup of water I stupidly had next to my MB while lounging and watching a documentary. I am usually so careful with all of my Apple products but this moment I regretfully was an ass to my precious item. So of course it booted down and would not turn back on. I did attempt the power button once but to no avail immediately. I had snatched the cord out the side (which was still full green after the shutdown) turned it over and watch a light rainfall pour. I had a mini meltdown while searching over the forums for a solution. Tried the rice trick from 4pm Wednesday to about 8pm yesterday. It did not turn on, though I plugged the adapter in just to see if it would still respond and it had a faint green power light. Today I'm having a relative take it downtown to peach mac to access the damages, as I'm too worrisome to keep at the drying process. At the very least I'm wondering if my HDD is salvageable as I have important files and close to home items I'd like to retrieve. So my question is how do I go about this? I've read up on SATA cables and external harddrives but I'm not as technologically advanced as I'd like to think so I need some advice. I'm willing to go that route early as I am not in the place for an Apple based repair right now, where I know the logic board is likely the issue and that will scrape near the cost of an entirely new Mac. Thank you. Edit: A note I forgot. A few minutes after the accident the fan went for a good 10 seconds, blowing as if I had been on the laptop for a long period of time. Not sure if that's good or bad.
