    those are APs that it is currently detecting. they will be there until it doesn't see them anymore. you could just turn off showing airport status in the menu bar if you really dont want it showing up

    ok thanks its just I'm selling my G4 ibook and I don't want the person I'm selling to see my home AP profile or the password I set up on the access point. Thatz why I'm asking is there a way to delete it like on the PC

    In order to delete your wireless access point's password from your system just go to the Keychain Access application on your hard drive in the Utilities folder which is in your Applications folder (/Applications/Utilities/Keychain Access) then click on your AirPort network password (if you have one) right click on it (or control click if you have a one button mouse) and then click on delete from the contextual menu, or just press the delete icon on the toolbar.

    Since you are selling your computer -- If I were you, I'd format the hard drive. This will clear everything from your system. To do so just boot your computer off of your OS X disk and choose the option erase and install. Doing this will erase absolutely everything that is on your computer now.
