Vista Startup Sound to be Mandatory?

Nutt Re:Horrible idea (865 comments)

When my laptop's volume buttons died I always carried around a 1/8 to 1/4 headphone adaptor plug. When I wanted to make sure that no sound would come from the laptop's speakers I just plugged the adaptor into the headphone socket. It prevented the laptop's speakers from making sound, was easy enough to carry around in the bag, and was small enough that nobody really noticed or cared. I don't know if it'd work on every laptop but it worked on mine.
