    I have an 8 month old iMac running snow leopard. I upgraded from an MBP running just leopard.

    Front Row will not run efficiently on my iMac so my setup to my 42" is with my laptop using Front Row.

    Now both computers are about side by side somewhat, as is the TV (this is in my bedroom). When I use the remote controller - it affects the iMac as well. iTunes launches... no big deal. But my problem is with the sound going up and down on the iMac (the blip blip blip sounds) when I scroll through songs with the remote on the laptop. It's highly annoying and was wondering if there is any way to disable the remote control function on the iMac?

    Absolutely.

    You need to either pair your Apple remote with the laptop, or turn of the IR sensor on the iMac.

    These processes are all described in this Apple KB article: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1619
