I can't believe no one knows about
Authored by: mario_grgic on Jun 20, '09 06:22:12AM

the simple way to do this. No need for custom preference pane or scripts or silly kludge solutions.

Simply edit the local shutdown script

sudo vi /etc/rc.shutdown.local

and append the following line

/usr/sbin/nvram SystemAudioVolume=%80

save the file, and you are done. If the file rc.shutdown.local does not exist create it.

To enable the chime, remove the line above from the startup file.
