Does anybody know the best solution to mute a mac at Shutdown? I assumed this would be fairly simple with AppleScript? But I can find little mention on Google, and what articles I have found reference Shutdown scripts that I cannot find on 10.5.6 My problem is that I like Shutting my Mac down rather than using Sleep. It wakes itself up everyday at 07:00, and if I've forgot to Mute it before Shutdown (doh!), I start hearing mail being received, Skype and iChat logging in etc. Any direction appreciated!
