Stephen Korecky has posted a bunch of handy Apple remote tricks
over at MacInstruct. His post shows you how to pair your remote with a Mac, how to use the remote to send your Mac into sleep mode, and more. Who knew that holding down the remote's Menu button produced the same disk-switching behavior on an Intel Mac as pressing the option key as you boot? Some of Korecky's tricks are a bit obvious (flipping through iPhoto slideshows and controlling Keynote presentations) but most of them are gems.
