    Yesterday I finally received my 1.83Ghz Core Duo Mac Mini, it looks great on my 20" Widescreen monitor and I have spent the last 2 days installing software and seeing how different it is to Windows.

    The only odd thing I have noticed so far is that every time I restart or shut down the volume will reset back to about 60% even though I have turned it up or down, is this normal or is there some setting that I have missed somewhere? :confused:

    Cheers for any help!

    I've never seen this. Don't notice it but surely its not such a big issue?

    It seems a bit odd because for awhile it was remembering the last volume setting. Now its gone back to resetting at 60% each time I shutdown or restart.

    I tried resetting the PRAM which seemed to reset my screen resolution but the volume setting is still lost when shutting down/restarting.

    Its not really much of a problem just a bit annoying as I have to turn up the volume each time I open up iTunes.

    Has any one else had this problem or is there some strange Unix command I can tweak somewhere?

    I've never seen this. Do you remember if you had the problem before you installed 2 days worth of software? Any of that software related to sound?

    Mine has done this since new. Not a big deal, IMO.

    My MacBook does this. I think it has something to do with having external speakers or headphones plugged into the audio out.

    I figured it was something like that. I'm guessing it's normal.
