so I figured it out, in case anyone cares:

System Preferences, Keyboard and Mouse, Bluetooth Tab, Change the keyboards name to something else (can't leave blank)

Thanks for posting back with the info. I see in Snowleopard you now change the name directly from the Bluetooth tab in System preferences. Just click on the gear wheel for your options.
