I have a Dell laptop, and everytime I shut down the server I get a very loud 'beep'; now this is annoying and I would like to turn it off.

Thanks

I donít think itís indicative of Uniform Server just wondering if this is a Dell or Vista feature! :)

Ric, you are right, I thought the pskill.exe program was the cause, so I downloaded another process killer, and it's still the same.

Thanks anyway.

Confession time! I now believe the problem is indirectly due to pskill.exe while hacking some code could not kill the mysql server. Traced this to a file named Close.bat what was interesting I actually had the PC audio switched on and yep you guessed it. I received that annoying beep, an alternative solution can be found on this page:

Well I remembered your post seems my original advice was incorrect :) hope the above may be of use.

Oops it not an alternative solution, consider implementing it because there is a small possibility of mysql data corruption, never seen it but its best to be on the safe side. :)

All the best
Ric :o

I've changed pskill.exe to pv.exe a long time ago and I can't remember hearing beep sound after that.
