Turn it off (hold the power button for 10 seconds) and put it back in the bag. Leave it sit in the bag for at least 24 hours. You want to wick as much water out of it as possible and hopefully avoid corrosion internally.

It is certainly a good sign that it's working for right now, but that doesn't mean you're "out of the water", excuse the pun.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
