You're on the right track... turn it upside down with the battery out and leave it to dry for at least 5 days. You can also try buying a large container of silica crystals at a hobby shop and put the computer and the open container of silica in an oversized plastic bag... If the water wasn't water, there will most likely be residue... but all this is worth a try... other than that, it can be disassembled and dried out and any damaged parts replaced... good luck on this.

Faulty connector

Two years ago I slipped on the ice and my MacBook Pro slid into a huge muddy puddle on Lake St. in Mpls. It was fully immersed for about 45 seconds. After a couple of hours, when I got home, I worked over all the orifices with a hair dryer, put the thing aside, and figured "well, it had a good life."
After a week, I took it to the Genius Bar. They swapped the battery and ran it through their diagnostics. All I needed was a new battery. True my 9 key and 0 key are deformed and are troublesome to type sometimes, but otherwise, this computer is just fine. All I can suggest if you get your keyboard wet is don't use it or let power into it for several days before calling the mortician.

Can I add backlight to my 13 inch macbook (unibody)?

Do you mean the behind the keyboard backlight or something else?
As far as I'm aware only the macbook Pro models have KB backlighting so without a motherboard change you are probably out of luck

If you have "good batteries" installed in the mouse and keyboard and you still have the problem- the best way is to remove the devices via the System Preference panel in your MacBook and then re-install them again. It is important that you remove them first as the system may revert to the previous connection. Good luck!
