    On your Mac:

    To turn IR on or off:

    Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Security, and then click General.

    Open the General pane of Security preferences
    Select “Disable remote control infrared receiver” to turn off IR reception, or deselect it to turn on IR reception.

    To configure your computer to respond to the commands of a specific remote control, click Pair, and then follow the instructions displayed.

    P.S. next time type "disable remote control" in the computer help section!!!!
