    Hi! I droped some milk on my MacBook's keyboard; so I sent it to service; they cleaned my keyboard and now it works perfectly but I receive the message asking me if I'm sure if I wont to shut down my computer.
    I get that message without touching the on/off button. If I press cancel, I can use the laptop for some minutes then the message apears again; if I do nothing it will shut down automaticaly

    Another problem is with the battery status in the top bar; it shows me an X but the battery seems to work fine; the laptop works without power cable.

    I made PRAM reset and I have the same problems

    I'm guessing the sensor for the power button is thinking its pressed. When you do nothing and it turns itself off, thats the same as just holding power button down when that message pops up normally - it forces the machine into shut down.

    Maybe when you sent to service they didn't think of the power button and theres still liquid under there?
