    Specs:
    MacBook Pro, 24' iMac
    Sound level Default?
    Anyone else have their volume level reset to minimum at boot? Seems that no matter what I set the volume to, every time I re-boot the volume is set to near minimum. Didn't happen with previous versions. ???

    How about creating a new Admin User - enable fast user switching - and set that User as auto log in and then restart and see if the volume biso is sorted. If so, then the issue is in your User Library so u can start dragging .plist files to desktop to pin point the issue.

    Deleted both of the files in Macintosh HD/Library/Preferences/Audio (asks for Admin password) did a restart and voila! No more problems. Set a sound level and it stays there.
