I would just shut it down (turn it off) and unplug it. That's the safest way to leave it. The battery will not discharge if it's turned off (at least not over the span of a week, or even a month).

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!
