    control panel > sound or startup

    And a good prank to play.... copy a fullscreen quicktime in loop mode into the 'startup items folder'.

    either use a standard dirty movie, or take a screen shot and aminate a fake crash!

    Can you still drag the shut down icon into the startup folder? I remember that used to work on older Macs.

    zesto..are we talkin' about the same thing here?
    i know how to change/add/delete alerts, put things/take out
    things of the start up/shutdown items...
    i'm talking about changing the one sound that goes off immediately
    after you turn your computer on or restart it...that ambient whoosh that all
    macs have..............yes? no?

    I'm sorry BROWNer, I wasn't trying to deviate from the subject at hand.

    *believe*

    yeah, I know what youre talking about, that

    BUUUUUUUNG!!!!

    sound when you hit the restart button.
    Yeah, you can lower your volume, and that
    will make it lower, but you cant change it.

    I do have a cool alert sound though.

    I have a godzilla "roar"
    and I have a scooby doo "gulp!"

    haha

    oh... I dont think so.
    that sound (just like with windows) is programed to play before you're even into the operating system.
    I know Dell and Intel have 'signature' sounds and Mac probably does too.
