Sometimes before I shut-down I'll forget to mute my speakers, then when I'm in the library and I turn my macbook on, the sound disturbs people. I couldn't find anything in System Pref. that would allow me to disable the start up sound. Any help greatly appreciated.

You want to hear that when you start up. It tells you that everything is A-OK with your Mac. If you don't have it muted and you don't hear it...well that isn't so good.__________________________________________________

I wouldn't know the solution to muting the sound, but I do have an alternate which I use. What I do is make sure it has a bit of a charge, turn it on BEFORE I go to the library, and let it sleep as I take it there in my carry-case. Then if I need to plug it in, I can at the library or run it off of the battery. Simple as that!

I never turn my powerbook off even when I'm transporting it. It's been fine since 2004 so I think you are ok doing that.

There are 2 software solutions to this problem.
One is called "StartUpSound.prefpane", and it adds a preference pane for the startup sound volume. It seems to be the most popular, but unfortunately it is not universal yet (PowerPC only) http://www5e.biglobe.ne.jp/~arcana/S.../index.en.html
Luckily, "Psst" is a universal binary. http://mistatree.org/Freeware/Psst/
