When I upgraded my macbook I copied my files and settings from my ibook.
However it also transfered over the old name so when the screensaver comes on or recognised by bluetooth the ibook name shows up.
How do I change this?

Go to System Preferences > Sharing, then change your computer's name at the top there.
