    So this is my first thread, but I've been around here for a while now, reading several posts about macbooks and it have helped me a lot.

    This is the problem:
    About a month ago, I accidentally spilled water all over my MacBook's keyboard, the mac was turned on, and i notices the keyboard wasn't working correctly; one time before that, I was taking a bath and i had my macbook in the bathroom for music, when i went out and tried to use it, the letter "p" on the keyboard wasn't working correctly, i just turned it off and a couple hours after it was working perfectly!
    So i did the same thing this time, let it dry for some hours, and it didn't worked, then let it dry for several days and it still doesn't work!
    So i removed some keys and try to clean the keyboard with comp air and it didnt worked still... So now I'm desperate!, I'm already thinking to send it to a mac store for repair, the thing is that right now I don't have the money to send it, since just for checking it its 400 pesos (i live in mexico) thats about USD$35 :eek:
    I want to know if there's a way i could log in to my macbook without having to type in the password, like using a remote keyboard or something, please, i love my macbook and i really need to use it for homework! (I study high school and need to record edit, etc music,videos and pics!)
    Please! if there's a way i could use my macbook in the meantime i take it to the geniuses i would be very happy!
    PLEASE HELP ME! i miss my macbook and hate pc's =S

    On the fence
    you could plug in a USB keyboard and use that.

    But it should be a mac usb keyboard right? because i think that would be a sure-to-go plug and play i guess...

    Pretty much any USB keyboard will work, doesn't have to be an Apple one.
