Has anyone had experience with mac book pros that have slight waterdamage.  i took it in to the genious bar and the tech indicated that I tripped the liguid sensor and that he was able to get it restarted.  He indicated that  the mac would die a slow death and eventually require the re-incarnation @ $755.  Right now the display goes down for 5 seconds and comes on and stays on for about 3-4 minutes.  This is an improvement from a couple of days.  Is there anyone that has had the experience that this cycling eventually stops or should I start planning for its reincarnation.  I also have some light and dark areas at the bottom of the screen where the dock is.  That is slightly annoying compared with the cycling display.  If this cycling never goes away, I am inclined to  fix or replace or forget mac computing forever.  Everything else seems to be performing ok. 

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
