    I have a 27 iMac.

    Is there any way to stop the loud BONG at start up? I hate that.

    (other than remembering to hit the mute button before turning off)

    Looks like a French bong or is it made for Texans playing football?

    That is exactly what I was expecting it to be about.

    start up bong

    Thanks guys.

    A. I don't put ever put my macs to sleep. I had a sleep problem with the iMac 24 I got two years ago. I got 4 brand new Macs and they all crashed in sleep mode. So I avoid that mode religiously.

    B. Thanks for the solution, that download program. However, I have a phobia about downloading anything not absolutely essential.

    C. So, nothing that can be done in house, without downloading?

    Thanks. I did not intend any double entendre with the bong terminology. Nice to know there are still some happening dudes out there.

    That "bong" is set in the EFI firmware, not on the hard drive, so without some app to manipulate that, you won't do anything to it.

    On a side note, my MBP has been asleep most of its life. Only time it gets shut down or rebooted is for critical system updates. Never a problem here.

    A. Why don't you contact Apple for support? Seems to be a user problem. Macs are designed to sleep fine and wake up almost instantely.

    sleep problem

    Believe me, I did contact apple support.

    I got 4 brand new 24 iMacs and all of them crashed on sleep mode. I finally resolved just to live without sleep mode.

    Since then, I have seen much discussion problems on the sleep mode.

    4 brand new, out the box. All crashed. Tech guys came and went.

    Accept the things you cannot change. So, I don't do sleep mode on my 24.
