    Hey all,

    is there anyway to change the start-up AUDIO volume from being at full blast to something less loud?? Same with when you unplug headphones, it always go to full blast!!

    You just turn the sound down with your headphones unplugged. Your Mac will remember the setting, and the startup sound won't be as loud.

    Thanks that app is nice and handy but not what I was looking for. I meant the actual audio volume not the "donnnnng" sound. Everytime I start up it's at full blast, and I have my mac hooked up to my 5.1, nothing like having someone send me an instant message at 4am and scaring the crap outta me, and having my neighbors bang on the walls lol

    On The Nickel, over there....
    I do what gorjan mentioned and it works. Whether I've slept the iMac or shut it down, it remembers my volume control setting. I don't use external speakers, so that might be something different. Good luck!
