kind of a random problem, but i often will have my MBP in the same room as my tv and it is annoying to have to cover up the ir sensor every time i want to use the my apple tv so that it doesn't activate front row? pairing with apple tv certainly does not do the trick, so some suggestions would be appreciated.

I am at work and don't have my Mac in front of me, but I think you go to System Preferences, Security and turn the remote off on the MBP. That will keep it from recognizing any remotes. I think you can only turn it on or off. Was it is paired/on, it will work with any Apple remote.
