Hi all, first post, but I plan on sticking around long after
My Intel based Mac Mini is awesome, but I need some help with the Apple remote.
The remote worked for about 2 days, but now it does not want to. I replaced it at my place of purchase, but the symptoms remain!
It only wants to put the Mac Mini to sleep. It's as if it thinks I am holding down the play/pause button. But I am not!!
Even from a few inches, it sometimes works, but mostly does not.
I have paired the new remote with the Mac, and it went swimmingly. Before I paired it, I unpaired the previous remote.
Is this simply a case of interference?
I am not using any other remotes at the same time! Like I said, even froma few inches it don't work!
Any help will be appreciated

Try holding the remote against your head (it'll act like an antennae -I'm not kidding either by the way!). If that doesn't do anything try moving your Mac to another room in the house and see if that does anything.

Sounds like your Mac has a bad IR sensor.
