How To Enable The Charging Sound On Your Macbook

The iPhone makes a pleasant chime when you plug it in to charge. Wouldn’t it be nice if your Macbook did the same? Well here’s how to do it!

With this tip your Macbook will make a quick chime sound when you plug in the power cord. You’ll know immediately that a proper connection has occurred and charging has begun.

  1. Disconnect your Macbook from the charger
  2. Open up Terminal (press down Command and Spacebar at the same time and type “Terminal” into spotlight, then press enter)
  3. When Terminal opens copy and paste into it the following: defaults write com.apple.PowerChime ChimeOnAllHardware -bool true; open /System/Library/CoreServices/PowerChime.app
  4. Press Enter

If you don’t want the sound anymore in the future do the following:

  1. Open up Terminal (press down Command and Spacebar at the same time and type “Terminal” into spotlight, then press enter)
  2. When Terminal opens copy and paste into it the following: defaults write com.apple.PowerChime ChimeOnAllHardware -bool false; killall PowerChime
