well.. I would say: go into OpenFirmware, type nvedit and have fun screwing up! :twisted:
somewhere there in the depth of nvram, maybe there is an option like "whistle" ^^

I haven't a real solution, but still it can help : if you hold the mute key (fn+F3) during the startup, you will not listen the "boing".

In OF you can also look at all options with printenv and configure with setenv or something like that.

Sceptiq is right, there's no need to be dismissive. Shutting down OSX with the sound muted will turn the startup chime off.

So far the only solution I've found is to hold the mute key (Fn+F3) while turning it on.

PostPosted: Thu Feb 16, 2006 8:49 am    Post subject: iBook startup screen illumination Reply with quote

Muting in OSX doesn't work for me.
But then I got this: Dimming the screen light close to minimum with OSX will make the iBook start with a darker screen. That's what I wanted.
But it's only dark until the kernel loads. Even dmesg tells about 15/15 light, and I didn't find a kernel parameter for this.

You can set the initial brightness in pbbuttonsd.

Of course, JoseJX. I was pointing to the real initial brightness. It should be more healthy not to switch from off to maximum when turning on the iBook.
Code:
$ dmesg  |grep backlight
Registered "ati" backlight controller,level: 15/15
