View Full Version : Mute iMac on Shutdown

Mar 31, 2009, 09:58 AM
Does anybody know the best solution to mute a mac at Shutdown? I assumed this would be fairly simple with AppleScript? But I can find little mention on Google, and what articles I have found reference Shutdown scripts that I cannot find on 10.5.6

My problem is that I like Shutting my Mac down rather than using Sleep. It wakes itself up everyday at 07:00, and if I've forgot to Mute it before Shutdown (doh!), I start hearing mail being received, Skype and iChat logging in etc.

Any direction appreciated!

For anybody else who may need it. This is "monk's" work, not mine!

display dialog " Are you sure you wish to shut down?"
--mute the volume
set volume 0
--shut down OS X
tell application "Finder"
shut down
end tell
