Spilled Liquid On My Mac or Keyboard - Mac Guides
If you read the link I posted, it answers that question directly.
The last line of your post is really unnecessary (the f off portion). Anyway regarding your question, taking off the back panel doesn't void the warranty as some of those parts are user serviceable. If you're doing major disassembly, do not make it evident. Those clips do break easily. If you take it into the genius bar, just say it's not working and see what they do. These things are quite vulnerable to the elements even relative to other computers. You have to be careful. Keyboard covers/skins are available, although not many people seem to use them. If it's within warranty, take it in. Just don't make up something contrived. The point is for them to go through whatever testing, and provide you with an estimate if applicable. Whenever the topic of liquid comes up, prior comments have suggested they go defensive. While I understand their reasoning, it's better for you if they just go through their normal testing procedure. Hopefully your data is backed up. If not you could always remove the drive and do that prior to sending it in.
Have you tried turning it on yet? I am guessing that 15 hrs is enough to dry out. If you haven't yet, then try.
No, no it's not. This is the biggest mistake people make with water damage. The longer you wait, the better.
That's good. 72 hours is likely long enough, but it doesn't hurt if you can get by without the computer to leave it a little longer. Can't hurt, and very likely might help.
It will truly depend on the person you talk to and what they find wrong with the machine -- I once took an iPod touch in with triggered LSI and they replaced it for me anyways. (Which is kind of related -- i dropped it in a tub of water, and it took 2 weeks of sitting in a bucket of rice before it fully functioned again) Just be sure to be nice and respectful when you go in!
