Play a shutdown sound

Contributed by: Mike Crosland
This tip is valid for: Both BeOS and Haiku

If you want an audio file to be played on system shutdown, copy
~/config/boot/UserShutdownScript.sample to ~/config/boot/UserShutdownScript and edit it to include something like:

/boot/beos/apps/MediaPlayer ~/config/sounds/[sound file]

Then place a copy of (or a link to) your sound file in /boot/home/config/sounds.

Note: If you’re still using R4.0 then replace MediaPlayer with PlaySound.
