    Hi, is there any way how to make iMac not to check DVD-rom during reboot. I mean, after each restart of the system, iMac checks DVD-ROM and make that well known sound (from DVD rom) - is there any possibility to make iMac not to use DVDrom when loading the system?

    And, second thing, sometimes, after reboot, my usb connected mouse is not detected by the system, i have to unplug and plug it back to usb... what may be wrong???

    THX!

    No, it is standard procedure of the POST (Power On Self Test), along with either Open Firmware or EFI to check for all bootable drives.

    Only time mine makes noise is if I have DVD/CD in the drive, and no it's not normal for USB mouse to go undetected.

    How often are you restarting? You really should just let it sleep instead of restart.
