    Turn off startup sound
    Does anyone know how I can permanently turn off the two second sound bite that plays inside the G5 PowerMac tower during start up?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can set your Power Mac to mute, but I wouldn't want to turn it off, it's how you know that the initial POST has been successful; if problems begin to start and you switch off the chime, it might leave you wondering how far it's getting during boot.

    Specs:

    Cool
    Like lil stated the start up chime, will tell what is wrong with your system if there is one. There are different sounds for each problem. Like if there is no memory or bad memory, you get a different cord.

    You can use StartupSound to control it: http://www5e.biglobe.ne.jp/~arcana/index.en.html. As recommended you might want to lower the volume instead of muting it.

    Thanks for the feedback and tips.
    I didn't realize that the startup chime has a practical purpose.
    That's different.
    Thanks again.
