    I hadn't noticed that the condensation from my iced beverage had dropped onto my trackpad (2 small drops along that small gap) untill 3-5 sec later when i realized that my trackpad had a mind of its own. immediately wiped it away and the trackpad was still quite unresponsive. shut down and booted up about 30min later with trackpad working fine and dandy.

    should i be worried about water damage? would anyone know if there are any water indicators/markers around that area within the laptop? :confused:

    If its sporadic that's normal.. After applying bodyguardz on mine (which pushed water in the trackpad) it was very sporadic.. I even left it overnight and it still wasn't working 100% in the morning. I ended up pointing a fan at the trackpad and it started to work like an hour later.

    Good luck!

    I don't think you have to worry about water damage, BUT there is a water indicator inside the MBP in the trackpad area. You'll need a special screwdriver to remove the battery to get to that area to see if it's turned red (those indicators are VERY sensitive, so there's a good chance that it has turned red).
