Is there any way to deaden the iMac start up sound? Better yet, eliminate it entirely?

Take note if you're running Lion, the author says it won't work. However, I'm running Lion on a new iMac and 2008 MacBook and it works OK. Your mileage may vary....

StartupSound.prefPane downloaded and installed. Works just fine. Needed the latest beta version to work as I have an Intel based iMac.

Don't have Lion so no issue there. As I've heard there are issues with Rosetta Stone V3 I won't be upgrading until I'm certain it's ok to do so.

Thanks again!!
