The Apple remote has only very few buttons, so you may not know what it is capable of.

If you've purchased a Mac recently, you probably have an Apple Remote. This nifty little device allows you to enter Apple's Front Row interface and control your Mac from afar. It's common knowledge that you can use your Apple Remote to play music, watch movies, and flip through pictures. ... What you might not know is that you can also use your remote to put your Mac to sleep, present a Keynote presentation, and lock your Mac. We'll show you how!
