I've searched the user manual that came with our 2005 BI Package #3 Prius
and have been unable to find anything about that little red button on the
fob.  I assume it will sound an alarm, but how would you turn it off?

Press the unlock button.

 I don't have my manual handy at the moment (it is listed in there,
somewhere), so by memory:

The red Panic button, if held down for ~2 seconds, will cause the
Prius' alarm to sound (lights flash/horn beeps).

To turn it off, I think the unlock button will work, as will starting
the car.  Unfortunately, the Panic button seems to have a longer range
(from the car) than the unlock button when the signall is picked up...
