Anyone know how to disable that cheesy startup sound when I power on my Mac?
If it makes a difference, I'm running Mac OS X 10.6.
I've tried two ways to disable the Start-up songs.
First option is manually stopping the sound by pressing the mute key(F10) every time I wish to shutdown or restart my mac. however, it's the temporary solution.
Another way is using Arcana StartupSound.prefPane.
if you'd installed that one, at your System Preferences >> Other , you'll see "Start Up Sound"
I've tried this one and it really works on my Mac.
OK - I had this problem and it was really annoying.
Why, I asked myself, was the startup sound playing so loudly through the speakers even when I always have my headphones plugged in, and why did it still play so loudly when I had set the volume to the minimum or muted it entirely before shutting down.
Here are the answers to these questions:
(note that you could substitute the word "headphones" in this post with "external speakers", if they are plugged into the headphone jack, I imagine they will have different volume setting to the internal speakers as weill)
