Code to silence the startup chime on Intel-powered Macs
Authored by: flammable on Jan 17, '09 01:31:27PM

The chime is important, and you probably shouldn't disable it. The chime verifies that the basic internal components are working as they should.

It's not foolproof - if the system is muted, you won't hear a chime - but it's an important troubleshooting tool when things go horribly wrong.
