If you want to use Auto Complete for some items you can edit ~/ 
Library/TeXShop/Keyboard/autocompletion.plist which contains the list  
of autocompletion substitutions. The structure is fairly simple; a  
list of

<key>which key is pressed</key>
<string>substitute this string</string>

pairs. Just delete the ones you don't want.

Good Luck,
