Found this on Yahoo about saving your laptop if you spill liquids on it http://tech.yahoo.com/gd/saving-your-laptop-after-a-spill/153194 Thought I'd post it here since it would get more viewings and well a lot of us have these fancy machines for work and or play and help keep us connected when we aren't at home or office.

 

Hugs,

Thanks Greg. This is one of my biggest nightmares. I am really carefull with liquids around my laptop but have recently come to the conclusion that the only way to avoid disaster is to have a hard and fast rule - no liquids within 10 feet, period. If I want a coffee, I'll take a break and walk away for it.

 

A friend of mine who was also very carefull, went to bed one night and inadvertently left a full glass of soda on his desk. During the night there was an earthquake, fairly mild, but enough to upset the glass. You can imagine the rest.....

You're might welcome Zip! I to try to keep liquids away from the laptop. But for me I have a stand I can adjust to the way I am sitting or often times laying here on the floor that keeps it out of liquids way, plus more times then not I am sipping on an iced latte that I got from the coffee shop which has a lid and straw. Hmmmm wonder if there are sippy cups for adults who are accident prone like there is for kids. If I remember right some are pretty good about keeping liquids in the cup. Oh gosh I might have just opened up the idea of baby wear fetish LOL.

 

Hugs,

Greg

It can also work, after the power is off, to pour alcohol on the affected area. Or even dip the entire keypad in alcohol. This is the recommended rescue of an electronic camera. The water mixes with the alcohol and drains away. The remaining alcohol evaporates without causing any corrosion, if the procedure is done soon after the water contact.

I use a travel coffee cup at the office. It has a very wide base to minimize risk of tipping, and a sippy cup-like lid. (It also has thermal insulation, so coffee stays nice and warm.) For water, I use a runner's water bottle with a squirt-nozzle opening. If you spend any time at all going to conferences, it's almost difficult NOT to acquire a collection of each.

 

At home, I generally have several spare keyboards in the closet. ;-)
