No startup chime in Lion

    Since I installed Lion I haven't heard the startup chime once.
    I did use this under Snow Leopard, but I did a completely fresh install so there should be no leftovers from 10.6.
    I was under the impression that the startup chime respected the user-set volume,
    but I always shut down with the volume at 50%.
    Is it possible that the aforementioned app modifies something at a "deeper level" than the operating system?

    I'm pretty sure the startup sound is at a bios level...since you hear it regardless of the OS you are booting into.

    In that case, how do I get it back?
    The app doesn't support Lion (at least not yet).
    I've tried contacting the developer but no reply.

    Resetting the PRAM (boot with cmd-alt-P-R pressed) should bring it back.

    Thank you.
    I've thought about that myself but don't dare try it - in case it actually works.
    I enjoy not having it, which is why I muted it in the first place.
    It was out of pure curiosity I asked.
