STOP trying to operate the computer while there's water inside — doing so can only cause further damage. Disconnect the AC adapter and take out the battery (the warranty is void now, so don't worry about removing the battery yourself). Stand the machine up on its front edges with the display open 30-45°, and leave the bottom cover off for a minimum of three or four 24-hour days with a household fan blowing room-temperature air into the underside of the MBP to evaporate the water away. Then try starting it up. If it runs, it may be OK. If not, take it in for repair, and brace yourself for a bill of $500 or more.15" '08 UMBP 2.4GHz/4G/250G; TiBook 1GHz/1G/120G; iPhone 3G, iTouch 32G, Mac OS X (10.6.4), scanners, projector, tablet, laser and photo printers, Pentax K-7, Olympus E-10
