windows sounds

Ok, In attempt to use the xp theme, minus the xp style, I assigned the logon and off wav files to windows. But when You start up or shut down they dont play the sounds, only if I log off or on. I do not see sounds for windows startup and shut down, what do I change? I do not log off as this desktop is mine alone, so the only time I log off is when I shut down to cool off.

Can it be done? Yes. Is it as easy to do as it was in XP and Vista? No. Have a look at both of these,

I already know how to play with the damn sounds in the "sound" via control panel. I found the logon and logoff, I also found exit windows. Where is it for startup? Better yet, what is it called? Or does it only exist through res hacking that dll?

No sounds at all in Windows 7
All: For some strange reason, no sounds (system or otherwise) occur when I turn on my Windows 7 HP-PC. After I upgraded from Vista to Windows 7, everything seemed fine; but now, there are no sounds. It's a dual boot PC; so, my speakers work with Linux. I have tried every suggestion I have...
