The procedure in bold was called.
So a marriage object spelled coffee on a child and a wife? Your programming is abysmal.

La Juve? Lasciamo perdere.

It's a problem that most laptop users are likely to encounter at some point, especially if you live with young children. Unlike keyboards used with desktop computers, if a drink or any other liquid comes into contact with your laptop while it's open, there's a potential for real damage. There are steps you can take to limit this, but you'll need to act quickly.

Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Instructions

Things You'll Need
Kitchen towel
1
Shut the computer down. As soon as you're aware that liquid has come into contact with your laptop, turn it off. Any damage could be exacerbated if you leave your machine on with power running through it.
2
Disconnect from the power source. If your laptop is plugged in, pull the power lead out immediately.
3
Turn your machine upside down. The easiest route for any liquid that's been spilled onto your laptop into it's central components is through the keyboard. Before attacking the problem with a cloth, hold your machine so that your keyboard is upside down and any water can escape. If you're faced with the less-common problem of having spilled water on your laptop's base, hold it the right way up.
4
Sponge the area where the water has been spilt with an absorbent kitchen towel. Avoid the temptation to vigorously wipe or rub away any of the residual liquid. This could splash drops into the inside of your machine. Whilst still holding your machine so as the surface where the liquid was split is facing the ground, sponge or dab away any liquid that is accessible.
5
Dismantle your laptop. To give your computer the best chance of surviving its shower, if you have the technical know-how and are confident enough to do so, take the casing off of your laptop. It'll dry out quicker.
6
Leave your laptop to dry out. Place your machine in a warm, dry area for at least 24 hours.
7
Turn your machine on. Hopefully, the above steps will have saved your laptop from any harm.

Garmond,

Thanks for the tips. I haven't seen them before, sorry!

Yes, my wife's fault is that she didn't turn the laptop quickly and got stuck with a broken laptop.

To keep the story short, last January, the laptop started to shut down because of heat. After contacting Lenovo, they send me the labels to send it for repair, but I told them about the keyboard and they told me that if the maintenance guys felt that shutting down is because of the spilled liquid ("and most likely it is") I'd have to pay for the repair plus shipping, which is alone 50 Euros. So I could have paid at least 100 Euros for a 300 Euros laptop

I asked for the price of replacing the keyboard and they asked for 73 Euros!!! Right!

After searching the Internet, particularly Lenovo forums I found out that this is a common problem with their cheaper models. Dust close ventilation and laptops shut down from heat. So my wife, being the dust buster that she is, blew away the dust and laptop got back functioning very well.

Next step was replacing the keyboard, I found a replacement in Hong Kong for 18 Euros with free shipping via registered mail. I got and replaced it yesterday. Laptop is back to normal again.

My other, more expensive, Lenovo laptop has actually more protection with liquid. My son spilled coffee on the keyboard as well alm: but I was quick in dealing with it. I left it to dry for about 4 hours, and nothing happened

If I look at things that way, I can say: I was born too early to be happy. But birth is one of the many things we do not get to choose. It is part of our destiny."

He only drinks milk and juice. Soft drink such as Coca cola and Sprite (7UP is logically not allowed until he get married) are not permitted yet, so coffee is out of question We usually have one cup of coffee and he usually roam the house while we having that one cup
