    Stop the remote working with a Macbook
    Hello there

    I have had my Macbook for about 2 weeks and I love it. But I wanted to know if there was a way to stop my remote working my Macbook temporarily as I use my remote for my Macbook and my Apple TV but I don't want to pick a track on my Apple TV and then for a totally different track to start on my Macbook.

    I know I could turn the Macbook off but the Macbook is normally downloading stuff (normally off of iTunes).
