    like the title says... I have a MB and my gf has an intel iMac. They sit in the same room. Every time either of us uses our apple remote, both computers are affected. Obviously, this can be somewhat problematic. Is there any way to stop it from happening?

    There is a way to lock the remote to a specific computer, but I don't remember exactly how to do it...

    System Preferences -> Security -> setup remote pairing.

    Ah, thanks. There isn't anything actually in system prefs that tells how to do it, but the phrase "remote pairing" is all I needed to find the topic in Help Viewer. In case anyone else is wondering:
