    Hi peeps,

    Every morning when i turn my iMac on i am greeted by a really loud lion startup noise and am worried it may wake up my parents. Even when i have headphones plugged in it still plays the sound out loud. Is there anyway i can mute this noise permanently so i dont have to do something each time i turn the mac on to stop it?

    Cheers :)

    You can mute your volume before you shut down.

    I'm just the opposite. For some reason the sound lowered by itself, to where I can barely hear it, and would like to increase it some. :confused:

    Why not just leave your mac on and put it to sleep? There is almost no evidence to prove that constantly turning your computer on or off is better for it or more energy conscious then putting it to sleep...

    If you're worried about people logging in and seeing what is under your account, just log out and put it to sleep at the log in screen. This way, when you want to use your comp after putting it to sleep, just push a key or move the mouse and it will return to the log in screen.
