Laptops do not like the refreshing taste of soda.
Unfortunately what has happened here is that there will be a residue of a kind of light acid and a sticky residue on the mainboard near the power supply or processor which will be shorting it out.
if it is not cleaned soon it will begin to eat away at the board as well.
Not an easily fixed problem.
you will need to:
completely dismantle the base of the laptop (leave the screen alone unless you know soda is in it too)
Clean the plastic case with a tooth brush and soapy water (dish washing liquid)
And get a plastic container big enough to hold the main board.
Fill said container with either Isopropyl Alcohol or methylated spirits.
Dunk mainboard in the container and soak for 1/2 hour,
gently scrub clean with a clean toothbrush.
repeat as needed until all of the visible gunk is gone.
leave case and board to dry for 1 week no less.
or conversely buy a new laptop.
