Turn off your computer and let it dry out. Leaving the computer running will just cook the liquid and make it stickier. If you ever have a spill again, turn your comp off right away and let it dry out for a good week.

I spilled wine all over an old laptop of mine. Some buttons wouldn't work. I gave it to a friend who asked for it and she says it has worked great for her.

Give your comp a bit of time to dry out. Let it sit in the sun in a window for a week, then try to turn it back on.

If the above doesn't work, ask the guys at your local computer store what you could try to clean it.

It sounds like there is debris beneath the keys. I would recommend using a blower to clear it out.

"." shortcut macbook pro


It can be done, though this workaround doesn't function exactly the same as on an iOS device.

- In "System Preferences" find "Language & Text" and select "Text"

- Add a new rule where " " (double space) is replaced with ". " (period space).

-Enable "Symbol and Text Substitution"

-Check this new rule

Take the phone, computer, and cable to the Genius Bar in your closest Apple Store and ask them to look at it. This is hard to diagnose through text; they will be much better equipped to help you.

Have a macbook pro and it has locked up, black screen now and isn't responding to mouse or keyboard


This has also happened to my Macbook Pro - nothing would work, so i basically pressed the power button until it closed down and waited a few minutes and turned it back on. The problem ( touch wood) did not come back again yet. Good luck!

Cursor and keys are unresponsive tryed 2 check if it was number lock witch its not


There has been a known issue with the first key (any key) of a Macbook Pro, not responding when typed and Apple appears to have addressed this with this software update for the Macbook and Macbook Pro:

Run the Macbook Pro Software Update v1.1 and the Macbook, Macbook Pro Keyboard Firmware update v 1.0 per this link:

Keyboard Issues with Macbook Pro

Let me know if this helps.

Macbook goes to sleep and doesn't wake up unless I do a hard reboot.


I have seen this caused by having a mouse plugged into mine. I have removed the mouse and touch the touchpad and it has come up from sleep.

That very well may not be your problem.

Here is the procedure that is recommend from Apple to help with the not waking from sleep problem. I included both methods as it is not clear which macbook you have. I also included the link to the article at the bottom.

The System Management Controller is an integrated circuit (computer chip) that is on the logic board of the computer. As the name implies, it is responsible for power management of the computer. It controls backlighting, hard disk spin down, sleep and wake, some charging aspects, trackpad control, and some input/output as it relates to the computer sleeping.

Over time, the settings in the System Management Controller may become unusable, which can result in operational anomalies with the computer. Examples include not turning on, not waking from sleep, not charging the battery, or not recognizing the AC Adapter, among others.

MacBook (13 inch, Late 2008), MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early 2008), and MacBook Pro (17-inch, Early 2008)
  1. If the computer is on, turn it off.
  2. Disconnect the AC adapter and remove the computer's battery.
  3. Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds and then release the button.
  4. Reconnect the battery and AC Adapter.
  5. Press the power button to restart the computer
Note: Starting with MacBook Pro (Late 2008) and MacBook (Late 2008) models, you may instead use the reset method for MacBook Air (below) to reset the SMC. All earlier models of MacBook and MacBook Pro must use the method described above, which involves removing the battery.
MacBook Air and MacBook Pro (Late 2008 and later)
  1. If the computer is on, turn it off by choosing Shutdown from the Apple () menu.
  2. Connect the power adapter to a working power source.
  3. On the built-in keyboard, press (left) Shift-Control-Option along with the power button once.
  4. Wait 5 seconds and press the power button to start the computer.
Note: You must use the keys on the left side of the built-in keyboard.


Here is the link to the article at the Apple support site.

Try buying a can of compressed air and cleaning around those areas if you have spilled liquid on them ,that could be the prob as well

The space bar on my new MacBook Pro often sticks so there are no spaces between words. MacMall had me do something in the system folder on the keyboard - worked for about 15 minutes. AppleCare had me take...


Go to your local apple store. Set an appointment with the genius bar.

Tell them you want a replacement for your laptop.
If you're firm about it... but be nice, alot of times apple will replace your unit... Tell them about all your attempts, and failed solutions.
They usually will make good on this type of thing.

Let me know how you do.
