Something doesn't sound right. You can reset the computer i think by cycling the key something like 3 or 5 times. Your check engine light should flash. I think. But i think that only clears codes.

Changing the alternator shouldn't change your idle, but if you want to reset the computer, just leave your battery terminal off for a coupe minutes and it will reset. If that doesn't correct it then you have something else going on... make sure you didnt knock off any vacuum lines or wires while you were changing the alt.
