    So I believe I got a very small amount of water on the keyboard and to my surprise my Macbook's Power button and keyboard no longer works. Not thinking I made a mistake and turned the notebook off with the trackpad (as it still worked/works) and didn't think about the possibility that I won't be able to turn my Macbook on anymore. Any suggestions as to what to do? When the keyboard wasn't working everything else was completely fine. Thanks!

    If it's water-damaged, all bets are off. You could try pressing and holding the power button for about 15 seconds. Then release and try powering it on.
