Disable the infrared port!
All the new models of MacBooks and MacBook Pros that came out in February don't include an Apple remote. I really don't mind, because I didn't use it much on my Macbook. When I got a new Mac in the past, I always paired the remote to avoid having my Mac controlled by someone nearby who has an Apple Remote. With these new Macs, there is no remote to pair. The best way that I found to avoid having Front Row launch anytime someone uses an Apple Remote is to check the "Disable remote control infrared receiver". The checkbox is in the Security pane of System Preferences.
