I finally moved my old Mini into the back room on a TV. I use Air Mouse to control it from my iOS devices.

However, with no keyboard and mouse connected it seems to bring up the bluetooth setup wizard each time I wake it from sleep. This is a 2007 (core duo 1.83) running the latest Snow Leopard.

How do I disable this behavior or utility?

Have you tried disabling Bluetooth? – Kyle Cronin Mar 22 '12 at 16:33
@KyleCronin You know, I hadn't even thought of that. Duh! – Adam Davis Mar 22 '12 at 20:54

You can disable the Bluetooth Setup Wizard by:

  • Go to System Preferences
  • Click Bluetooth
  • Click Advanced
  • Un-check 'Open Bluetooth Setup Assistant at start up when no input device is present'.

The screen should look like this (the checkbox above the highlighted section): advanced bluetooth

More information in this Apple KB - Wireless Input Devices

Also, if you are not using Bluetooth at all, you can disable it as well.
