Tip: Disable shutdown beep in FreeBSD
Beeps are annoying and the one at shutdown is no different.
Here's how to get rid of shutdown beeps:
# sysctl hw.syscons.bell=0
# echo "hw.syscons.bell=0" >> /etc/sysctl.conf
We've started by becoming the superuser and then on step 2 we've disable the console bell. To guarantee that on next boot that horrible beep doesn't crop up we've added a sysctl to disable it in /etc/sysctl.conf.
