    So 4 days ago, I had my Mac on my lap and a glass of wine was about to fall (it was on the table in front of me) so I saved it but unfortunately some of its splashed onto my mac... There wasn't a lot in one place just tiny spots a bit everywhere! I reacted very quickly and flipped it upside down, as my boyfriend ran for papertowel, I shut it off right away while he was cleaning it. I kept it upside down for over 72 hours, and last night I turned it on to see if any damage was done. It worked perfectly, nothing seems wrong, no keys are sticking but I immediatey turned it off in panic that maybe it still wasn't completely dry and would short circuit. Can anyone tell me if it's safe to use my mac? I really need to use it for my finals but if not using it for a couple more days saves it then I'll survive without it. What else can I do???

    I would think it's safe now after 72 hours. It already did what it was going to do and if it didn't short circuit now you should be ok.

    And here I thought you were asking about Windows emulation software.

    So did I :)

    Yeah, it should be OK now
    Sounds like it was all superficial and didn't get to the internals

    Yeah, if it was just a few droplets here and there, it probably didn't ingress past the keyboard if you flipped it and cleaned it quickly.

    I once spilt a bit of soda on my previous macbook, literally weeks after getting it, enough got on to make a couple of keys very sticky ( that I eventually took off and cleaned under ), but fortunately that was all, and the machine was fine for years.
