    I spilled water onto my macbook pro and now some of the keys don't work. I'm not really worried about that though. I have an external keyboard that I use more than the laptop's so I'm not worried about saving it or drying it out. All the water is gone but for some reason the N button is stuck electronically or something, so it is essentially wanting to type out "nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn" every second.

    Is there any way of disabling access to the keyboard through the terminal or something?:mad:

    If you spilt water onto your laptop, you shouldn't have left it running...there have been numerous posts here about shutting down it immediately, taking out the battery, and hanging it upside down fro at least 48 hours to dry.

    Again this doesn't really help you because the damage is done but just an FYI.

    Oh I didn't. I turned it off and grabbed a shirt and soaked up all the water and then left it upside down with a towel to soak up anything left. But yeah, still no solution to what I'm looking for.

    pull it apart and unplug the keyboard, course your trackpad will stop working too...

    I'm just going to leave it alone, clamshell mode from here on out.

    Or you could disassemble the unit and clean the keyboard for any spill.
