anyone have any suggestions........i spilled sweet tea in my macbook keyboard......took steps to dry it out, the technician said the mac was dead, BUT the hard drive is good.....i can plug it in, and it boots up to the log in screen.....however, the screen flicks on for about 20 seconds, then immediately OFF......if i hold a flashlight up to the blacked out screen, i can see the screen, but its just not lit. ALSO, it seems to fall asleep every 15 seconds....i have to hit a key to wake it, and then b4 i can enter my password, the screen cuts out again....i know its dead, but has anyone ever experienced this b4? i know the only solution is to buy a new mbp, but any info would be appriciated...thnx!
