    Dos anyone use that famous iAlertu program? If so, is it possible to disable the alarm without the remote control? Or do you still have to disable it with the apple remote regardless?

    But what about if I forget the password and do not have the remote at all?? :D Will it just stay beeping until the battery dies? Can't someone just pop off the battery and then it will shut off?

    The whole point is you have to be close enough to hear it sound off when someone moves it. It's not a real secure alarm system. If you want something to really protect it, buy LoJack for Laptops.

    I like iAlertU for when leave at table to place an order at Starbucks. It's really only for that type of situation. If you hear the alarm, it's protected in a sense, but anyone could make off with it if you're not within ear's distance. Not like it will stop any real thief.

    ^ Nothing will stop a determined thief. iAlertU is a deterrent, nothing more.
