Easier way
Authored by: Manic Velocity on Oct 08, '03 06:32:09PM

Not sure if this works on every machine, but it works on my flat screen iMac and 12" iBook.

I just hold the "Mute" button on the keyboard before I push the power button, and voila, no startup sound.

This helps when I'm powering up my iBook in class and don't want to disturb the teacher or other students.

I like hearing the startup chime, its kind of reassuring..... at any rate it sure is better than that godawful Windows sound :)

On my 12" Powerbook if the sound is muted when I shut down it restarts in that same state. The sound doesn't come back until I turn it back on.
