    I accidentally knocked a glass of water over onto my macbook. It only got on a small portion of the keyboard, but the laptop cut off immediately. I don't think it got very deep into the computer, but it will not turn back on. I took out the battery and laid it upside down over a towel for the laptop to dry out. How long should I wait until trying it again, and if it doesn't turn back on what should I tell the people at the Apple store when I take it in? I have Apple Care.

    Also, would blow drying it on a cold setting be helpful, or would that make the problem worse?
