    I have a MacBook Pro mid 2102 and a few months ago I spilled water on it.
    I am not willing to pay $1400 to fix it, so I am trying to do it myself and I mostly know what I am doing (I am a computer engineer with hardware experience).

    My laptop after some work is turning on and staying on for something around 15 seconds before turning off. The interesting thing I discovered is that while I keep pressing "caps lock" my computer never shut down. I imagine that it is because the keyboard is generating an interrupt that is blocking some safety mechanism (that is turning the Mac down). However, I am not sure and I have no idea where I could work this around. Does any one know something about this?

    ^ is great advice. You could unplug the keyboard immediately and then plug in a USB keyboard. If that works, then you may just need to replace the keyboard.
