It seems my iMac 24 vintage May 2008 does not have its startup sound. Can anyone help me get it back? Please?<br>Also I have had occasional problems lately, like past month, with putting it to sleep. Anyone else have this issue?<br><br>
From the Apple menu, choose Shut Down (or if the computer is not responding, hold the power button until it turns off).<br><br>Unplug all cables from the computer, including the power cord and any display cables.<br><br>Wait at least 15 seconds.<br><br>Plug the power cord back in, making sure the power button is not being pressed at the time. Then reconnect your keyboard and mouse to the computer.<br><br>Press the power button on the back to start up your computer.<br><br>The steps above will reset the SMC which controls sleep and other power functions.<br><br>When you restart hold down Apple-Option-P-R until the machine restarts a second time, hopefully this step will cure the sound. Check your sound preferences too.<br><br>------>#1 - JD's Trivia game<br><br>------>#2 - MM-MCF Trivia game
Thank you. That did it and I get the happy sound again. But not near as pretty as the iMac 800 (lamp) sound. Now that is one pretty computer, a beautiful screen, sound and I never, never had an issue with it at all. It has 10.4.XX in it and loves it. I never tried 10.5. Why? Because it is dependable as is.<br>Thank you, again.<br><br>
