How do I turn OFF the tune that plays when I turn on my iMac desktop computer? I have Mac OS X 10.5.2 running. Is there a way to turn it off, if so, I'd appreciate anyone letting me know.
Thanks

Now, the only way to do it in OS X is to mute when you shut down.

I did some googling and found this for you.

I agree that muting your sound is the best approach.

The preference pane you found RobertC looks a little dangerous to me. It doesn't appear to be Leopard aware, and was released in 2007, so any late model Macs (the new Mac Pro, the new iMac, the latest MacBook/Pro revisions may all not be well tested or working properly. I guess this is a "use at your own risk" warning.

I think the muting only works on laptops if you use the mute key. But I may be wrong.

On my MBP i just press the mute key and its works fine but doesn't work on my imac.

Sorry not a wise move .

From what I read on some sites it was recommended but now I am finding others telling you to avoid it. Well pointed out mac57.

I believe there's an AppleScript to do this

You can hold the mute button on the keyboard on bootup, too.
