    I'm referring to the two second sound that comes whenever you hit the power button. Is there any way to disable it?

    I use my MBP in lectures and had the same problem. If you mute the MBP before turning it off then the sound doesn't play at start up. I tend to use sleep mode now though (it doesn't play when it wakes from sleep).

    Not a true solution, but just hit "mute" before you shut down your computer. I've tried using the startupsound sys pref, but it didn't work for me in the past.

    Haha nice, very creative, and the first result [a downloadable program] worked for me. Appreciate it!
