    Volume Control on MacBook Pro
    I have set my volume in System Prefs (I like it full) and everytime I restart the voluime is lowered. This did not happen on my old Laptop. Is there a way to lock it?

    Thanks,

    JJ

    I had the same issue with my Core Duo iMac until installing the 10.4.7 update. Now, my volume setting is restored to where I left it after every re-start. If you haven't grabbed the latest OS update, I'd try that. If you have, then I'm at a loss.

    My MBP did the same thing when I first got it. But now it doesn't. I'm not sure what I did if anything other then updates. But you said you're already up to date. Maybe it'll just fix itself like mine did.

    Sorry for being mean, but volume being lowered is not part of the Macbook Pro, but the os. You should have this thread moved to the operating system part of the forum.

    I'd try installing the addon startupsound.

    It enables you to determine at which volume the system should start up. Most people use it to lower the intro chime, but you can also set it to 100% volume...

    I finally used the Combo updater to fix the volume problem. Usually running a COMBO updater will fix any missed issues from previous updates.

    I also repaired permissions and zapped my PRAM.


    Here is the one for a PPC and the one for Intel.

    Thanks for all of your help.
