    I tried searching around for an answer but came up empty.... I'm wondering if it's possible to disable the sound my new iMac makes on start up. It's not a big deal as I mostly use sleep/wake when the computer is not in use but on those days when I actually have to power off and reboot it would be nice to have a silent start up.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the quick reply. The muting would do the trick but unfortunately I'm usually not the one powering down (wife also uses this computer) and she usually forgets to sleep instead of shut down, so I'm guessing muting will also be forgotten. The app in the link sounds like it might do the trick though. I think I'll give it a try.

    Thanks!!
