i used a wet finger to use the trackpad and adjust the volume. After that the MBP started behaving erratically with the mouse moving all over the place and randomly clicking.

I used it with a wet finger about an hour ago, but the problem is still happening.

Is this expected?

keep water away from these things, they just spent 1100 on repairs for a new logic board and wireless card.

A little bit of water can get inside there and cause that behavior. Wait a few hours for it to dry out.

Thanks for the responses. I shut it down for the night, and now it's back to working normally.
