The best thing you could to to avoid the startup gong (if that is what you are referring to) is to just mute the sound. There really is no way to disable it. Macs have been making that sound for over 20 years now, they aren't going to stop anytime soon. :black:

Ah, much better. I hope that was good for you, as it was for me.

Actually there is a hack that will disable it:

That will turn off the sound regardless of the volume your system is set to when you shut down.

That's blazing fast man, my pc (p4 2.8ghz 512mb RAM) takes more than one minute.

I'm guessing that apple laptops don't have that volume wheel.
