Since the keyboard is a separate piece of equipment from the Mac Pro you should be able to clean it. Do a Google search for cleaning keyboards that have had liquid spilled into them.

A good friend of mine had that happen to him. What he did was take the keyboard apart and rinsed it completely with pure water (distilled) until all foreign liquid and stickiness was removed. He let it dry thoroughly for about a week, reassembled it, and it functioned normally. No sticky keys or other ill effects.

Like anything else, your mileage may vary.

Regards.

Sorry...I probably got confused & thought that you were talking about a MacBook Pro vs. a Mac Pro.

This is probably the best solution if you can't get your keyboard to work properly:

Apple Wired Keyboard with Numeric Keypad MB110LL/A

Hope this helps,
