I was wondering how much is bad...

I ask because my daughter got out of the shower and decided to dry her hair next to the computer. Now don't get me wrong... it wasn't puddles worth; maybe a drop or two at most, but it did appear to go into the vents.

Not to mention my wife (a few times) has decided to blow on the vents to get the dust out; and I know that some spit probably came out.

Could this possibly damage it? How likely?

I was told that as long as the system is not on it will be fine; however, is turning it off enough, or does/should it be unplugged (the system was not on when these things occured)?

Thanks...

Easiest fix would be to not let her dry her hair next to your computer. Also tell your wife to use a can of compressed air its a lot more efficient and wont do harm to a pc. The moisture shoudlnt be enough to cause a problem but if enough gets in there over time it could possibly degrade the connections a little but i highly doubt what little you got there would cause a problem for you in the future.
