    i spilled coke on my touchpad on my ibook and all of a sudden, it doesn't work at all.

    the click, still works, but it won't move the cursor at all?

    what should i do?

    Don't drink around your laptop.

    I feel for your loss, but you should have been more careful. Shut it off, take out the battery, and let it dry for several days.

    is there anyway to clean it, or should i just wait it out?

    and what does taking out the battery do?

    It ensure the circuits inside your mac are not powered at all thus saving them. Turning it off is not enough.

    That sugar really gums up the works. Not much you can do except wait and see.

    Then you could have someone at an apple shop take it apart and see.
