    My remote for my iMac is not working. I originally thought it neeeded a new battery but that was not it. I had a power outage the other night and since then have been noticing the problem.

    The apple support says;

    'To turn on IR reception:
    Open System Preferences and click Security.
    Deselect "Disable remote control infrared receiver.'

    When I go to system preferences and then security, the option to 'disable remote control infrared receiver' does not show up.

    Yesterday I restarted and the option came back, this morning after turning my computer on it wasn't there again. Any idea how to resolve this problem for good?

    Thank you
