Apple MacBook Pro

Greg recently got MacBook Pros at work and he's having issues turning the laptops on and off. Apple took away the classic startup chime, and it takes about 20-30 seconds to figure out if it's actually on. Leo says that there's a terminal command that's supposed to turn the chime back on: NVRAM BA=%01. If that doesn't work, Apple may have disabled that.
