Code to silence the startup chime on Intel-powered Macs
Authored by: pony777 on Jan 16, '09 12:11:39PM
In the old days, these tones were accompanied a sad mac icon. I only encountered that once in all my years of using macs. Newer macs instead use tones as indicated above. A quick glance at [link:http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1547] reveals that, with exception of some new iMacs, the system power LED blinks along with the tones. Of course, on my Macbook Pro, the power LED is busted (anybody know how to fix that?) so I'll just have to listen carefully!
