How You Can Disable the Mac OSX Lion Starup Sound

Note: If you’re visiting this page by link, I’m afraid I’m not the original author of the page you’re looking for. The original content was posted at a page under the “phil.im” domain; when I found the domain had dropped and was (at the time) unregistered I picked it up for personal use (with my name Phil, and all). The Phil.im page drives a little traffic to this site and, rather than give everyone following this link a 404 error I thought you might appreciate some trace of the information you expected to find here.

The original phil.im post can be found at Archive.org.

I’ve taken no effort to test these solutions, but I hope the info helps. Enjoy the silence!

The two solutions recommended in that post are:
• Psst
—-this domain is currently parked; the link above is from Archive.org.
—-the application appears to be hosted Softonic.com, as well
• StartupSound.prefPane
