I have an Altec Lansing system hooked up to my iMac Intel. Is there a way to have the output volume to full everytime I boot up instead of it being halfway?

Startup sound might be able to help ya out.

It's normally used the other way around (to mute the startup sound), but it also lets you crank the systems volume to the max...

Shouldn't it be the same level as it was at shut down? So if you shut it down with the volume all the way up, it should be that high on start up.

Hrmm, didn't quite work the way I wanted it too. Thing is on my Altec Lansing volume control is sensitive. I mean everytime I boot up my iMac its automatically set at half, by that I mean when you press the speaker icon on the keyboard. I would like to have it so that when it boots up it would be at full instead of halfway.

Open an AppleScript blank and type or paste this in it:

set volume 7

Go to File, then Save As, and from the drop-down menu in the next window, save it as an application. (You can check to see if it works by opening Sound in the System Preferences and watching the bottom indicator when you double-click the AppleScript.

Drop the script in the Applications folder or someplace you can find it, and go to Accounts in System Preferences. Choose Login Items, hit the + at the bottom and navigate to the AppleScript. The machine should start at full volume forever after.
