    is there a way to start-up in mute? for example, when you press the power button the mac will start-up without the start-up sound. this would be really helpful when in class.

    one solution is the shutdown in mute but i dont always remember to do that.
    another solution would be to plug in headphones but thats just a workaround.

    On my PowerBook you can start up in mute by holding down the mute sound button (F3). Haven't tried it on other computers...

    i think the easiest way is just to mute the computer before you shutdown. then when you restart, it will be in mute (or whatever volume level you left it at).
