    I have a mac mini and a macbook that live on the same desk. The mini is my media center. I've tried repeatedly to lock my apple remote to the mini by following apple's instructions. Each time, the lock icon comes up after a few seconds, indicating that the process has worked.

    However, when I actually use the remote, it still effects both machines. I've even gone so far as to shut the macbook down while locking to the mini to ensure that the remote wasn't locking to both machines somehow, but no dice.

    Any help?

    Each machine must be locked to two different remotes. Is this the case? If not then lock a different remote to the macbook and see how that treats you. A locked remote works on any other mac that is already not locked to a different remote. Best of luck

    :confused: Really? That seems to sort of defeat the purpose of being able to lock them. I never us a remote for my macbook. Anyway, I'll give it a shot and report back.
