<Alt Gr> Key activates Energy Saving Mode

Since Today in the morning <Alt Gr> does no longer work as it should. Instead of activating some special characters (like “{”, “}”,“²”,“³”) on my German layout Logitech USB keyboard, it activates the "Energy Save Mode" shutdown.
Might have to do with the swallow of beer I poured out on the keyboard yesterday evening ;-)
Or with the hot water shower it had to undergo this morning to get the sticking keys smooth running again ...

Any known workaround for this?

Best regards

As you know beer and keyboards never mix. Have you allowed the keyboard to dry properly? Now not done this is awhile but you could get some isoprophyl and remove the key caps and give the whole thing a good wipe down.
