Hi new to this forum. Very useful resource great work.
 
I have seen these before and the case will shield the board a bit and the coffee will find its way around to the bottom case. But not always so check the logic board carefully.
 
It will however short out the keyboard and as the power button is part of the keyboard circuit, it stops working.
 
Suitable for Macbook unibody A1342 and possibly others but I am not 100% sure about the others
 
Once itseverything is well dried and cleaned if the power button still won't work you can try to jump start it.

Take the back off and look for the keyboard connector. It's next to the battery plug, check the battery removal guide to see pics.
 
Disconnect the keyboard ribbon, note it's difficult to get back in sometimes. Plug in a usb keyboard, usb mouse and AC power if you need it. There are 30 gold pins in the keyboard connector on the logic board. Counting from the left you need to momentarily connect pin 5 and 29 with something metal, sharp pointed tweezers worked well.
 
This will simulate pressing the power button and jump start your macbook. If it boots up normally all is well with the logic board. You will probably need to replace the top case and possibly the DVD drive to get it fully functional again. If it won't boot then there are problems, mainly bad ones.
 
If you have fully disassembled your Mac you can get away with connecting just the LCD, usb keyboard, usb mouse, AC power, HDD and the FAN (V.Important!) Then try to boot.
 
Good Luck.
