    I got some water into the trackpad for macbook retina 15" and now it keeps jumping around, clicking even when I'm not using it. I already tried to dry out the edges by putting a receipt in-between the gap of the trackpad and macbook retina . What are the best ways to fix this ?

    how long should I wait for it to dry ? I just turned it off and unplugged it for about 6 hours, trackpad still the same .

    It could already be damaged, or it may take a day or two to dry. Be prepared to take it in for service.

    And unfortunately your warranty is likely gone. Damage might not show up for weeks.

    If it works after drying then my best advice for you not to bring any drink near your expensive Macbook Pro. :apple:

    Trackpad replacement is extremely expensive on a rMBP as it includes the entire top case, keyboard and battery. Had mine changed under AppleCare cause it was making a crunching noise when clicked.

    As others stated, give a few days, it take a while for the water to dry up.

    I also recommend getting a laptop stand like mStand as it will keep your mbp elevated.
