I just ran across (actually had to dig up forcibly) a fun shutdown sound I had on my mac a looong time ago. ( I think I got it from Descent ][ )
How are these done now? I don't recall seeing this in a long time and a little casual poking around hasn't gotten me anywhere...
>> How are these done now?
If you mean configuring a logout hook, i haven't done such things since Jaguar probably. (i think Mike Bombich had a tool called Login Window Manager that i used... but the situation may be different now).
I have seen some posts talking about "/etc/rc.shutdown.local" (it doesn't exist, but i think we can create it). Google on rc.shutdown.local i guess.
Is this question in the context of Mac OS X 10.6.x?
well remember back to the days of OS 9 we had the Startup Items and Shutdown Items folders, and Finder would open anything in them when shutting down or starting up, and you could put a sound file in there to play then. I miss having a shutdown and startup sound. I was wondering if they have such a critter in 10.6 as I've been looking for it ever since 10.2.
I'll have to test the rc thing. I thought rc was abandoned in general as of 10.5? Will use the "play" shell app and see if that works during the shutdown process.
