    I spilled a Snapple on my keyboard and quickly flipped it over but some got underneath. How should I wash it out? Is there a way to remove the keyboard?

    If you have a TiBook (black keys) I know they pop out and in pretty easy. I think (not sure, don't take my word for anything) the aluminum ones do to. Maybe try it with F12, and if it doesn't work- glue it in :confused: or just wait for a knoledgable macrumoror to come about and confirm my suspision.
    Your call.

    I'm pretty sure the Aluminum PowerBooks do NOT have removable keyboards. This is why the RAM/AirPort Extreme Card are on the bottom now instead of underneath the keyboard. You may be able to pop the keys off and clean it that way. If your going to do that then I'd really take my time in taking the keys off. If you have a backlit keyboard be very careful around that too.
