Hi,

On my new MacBook Pro / Lion, Sound icon is greyed out at start up, as well as the output volume in System Preferences (though sound can be heard, you just can't change the volume); only workaround found so far: plugging in/out earphone, then sound icon is reactivated.

 

Do you have any idea? Concurrent access to sound output from another software? (Skype, Growl...?)

 

PS: in Windows 7 / bootcamp, volume settings work perfectly from start up

 

Many thanks,

Fred
