Thanks Guys.
I could not get it to work at all on my late 2012 iMac so I will have a look at both of the other alternatives.

And trying the mute button on the keyboard during startup/shutdown does not work either.

It's possible you have a previous version which is free. The latest version is definitely not free. You can check that yourself by going to the developer's web site. He's charging $14 for the single license version and states that the download acts like a demo for 10 uses and then it quits.

It's likely that the firmware used in the 2012 iMac models is different than that of the 2011 models which is why Startup Ninja doesn't work. It definitely works with my mid 2011 iMac and according to other users it works on theirs also.

Slydude's idea of using a headphone male plug should work though. And since the headphone jack is in the back of your iMac, it won't be noticed.

Thanks for that as well, ear phones sound like a safer option, I have a pair that are now redundant so i will use those.

Thanks for all the options gents.

The gong plays through the internal speakers, so the headphone jack trick won't work.

He's right. That's why I turn the internal speakers off, and still have sound with the external speakers. And no gong.

I wonder what constitutes a "use", though. Is the act of turning off the gong one use, or is it considered a use every time the computer is powered up with the app shutting off the gong?

I guess I'm the only one one that likes that sound then?

I only ever hear it when I boot back into OSX after a brief spot of gaming in Windows. It's a comfort thing 'ah....back in OSX'

@Triple Dot:

Note that the CNET download specifically states that it's a trial version......

^ Yeah, maybe I had a fully-free version. Who knows. I've learned to live with the gong. Computer starts much faster, and shuts down much faster, without the various added bloatware.
