It would appear that it does indeed not work with iMacs.

The simplest solution is to mute the volume before you shutdown. An even simpler solution would be to simply put your machine to sleep when you leave it for extended periods of time.

It works with an iMac as well as other Macs. I have a Mid 2011 iMac running Mountain Lion and it works just fine.

Do you use external speakers? If so there is a simple fix for that.

Gents.
I cannot get it to work on OSX 10.8.4 unfortunately, and I am using the late 2012 iMac 27" with built in speakers.

Thanks for your ideas though..

Hmmm, interesting. I wonder why the developer says that on their webpage then.

Don't know Van, it does work on my iMac and has for some time. Also, if I remember correctly we had another thread asking the same thing. The OP tried it on his iMac and it worked OK. Perhaps it doesn't work on the current generation of iMacs?

Follow up.... I just tested it again and it works great on my iMac. I can turn the startup sound on and off from the Startup Ninja dialog.

I have no idea why the developer says it doesn't work except that he may be referring to the current (2012) iMac. My iMac is the mid 2011 model.

Shouldn't plugging the tip of a headset, 3.5 mm male tip into the headphone jack mute the speakers. If you don't like the wire being present the plugs are cheap. Or can be made by cutting the wire from an old headset and using the tip.

I remember having this conversation with Charlie quite a while ago, and it certainly does work on iMacs

As to the OP problem, its a simple 1finger Tap on the MUTE button, before you shut down and 1 finger tap on the MUTE when its up and running.

The thing is, THAT sound is essential to the start up of the Mac, and its important to hear as it lets you know that your Mac is running as it should be. Its when you dont hear it on start up, that you should start to worry that there is something up with the machine.

You can use a free app called Cocktail which as a provision to shut that nonsense off.

Cocktail is not free. It costs $14 to register and will shut itself down after the 10th time you use it unless you buy a license. Also where does it say it will turn off the startup sound?

It actually does some of the same things that OnyX does except OnyX is really free.

It's free. Believe me, I am too cheap to buy something like that. I don't have it now becasue I did a wipe and reinstall of the OS last week.
