Oh, that happened to me, too! Luckily, I pulled out the power cord immediately (the battery was already out of it), so it was just a matter of a few days for the keyboard to dry out thoroughly after I sprayed it (two separate times) with electronics cleaner. Of course, I also had to take the laptop totally apart and make sure that I cleaned out any other coffee seepage. Being a computer tech helps, too.

Glad to see that you are back!

I did that with Diet Coke once. Not. Fun. Thankfully it was an external keyboard and my laptop was intact. Best of luck to you!
