A little back story: I've come into possession of a 12" PB G4 (1 Ghz) that had lemonade spilled into the keyboard and a few of the ports on the left side. The computer was on when this happened, and it immediately shut off on its own. My brother, the original owner, was told by Apple that the PB was toast and nothing could be done. Lucky for him, his insurance paid for a new one. Weeks later, for the heck of it, I powered up the computer and to my surprise it booted up. The ports and combo drive are working fine. However, the keyboard and trackpad do not work at all. Also, I've noticed that after powering up the battery then shutting down for the evening, the battery won't hold its charge overnight--it's completely drained by morning. The best I can tell, the PB is still on somehow and drawing power even after I shut down. I can hear whirring noises when I hold my ear to the case. Anyone know of anything I can try before biting the bullet and taking it in to be repaired? Or am I asking for another miracle on top of it even starting up again? I'm a little short on cash and just want to exhaust my options before plunking down $$$. Sorry for the long post, & thanks in advance.
