    Hi,
    the other day i was just watching a movie on my mac when i accidentally spilled water on my keyboard (top right power button) it immediately turned off by itself which made me very worried so i flipped it upside down and got some water out. i then wiped it with tissue and blow dried it on the cool setting and finally i let it air dry. It seemed to work fine this morning when i turned it on but just a few minutes ago when i turned it on it only stayed alive for about 30 seconds and turned off again. i dont know whats wrong ? my data is there and my keyboard works fine. i am going to the apple store tomorrow to give it a check.

    Good idea,if you spilled water near the power button it might be a short circuit in the switch,or the battery circuit.

    What's wrong? You spilled water on it. Then you proceeded to do several things which were ill-advised. Blow dryinh- even n a cool setting- can create static electricity. The tissue could have created lint which will not help.

    I am unsure how long you let it sit to dry out, but that really should have been done for a minimum of 48 hours, with the bottom off to help circulation, but no air blowing on it. The reality is, the damage has already likely been done. Give it more drying time, and cross your fingers for good luck, but the Air will likely need to visit a repair site.
