How do I turn off the start up sound on my Sony Bravia KDL

Resolved Question:

How do I turn off the start up sound on my Sony Bravia KDL 40EX700.
I have turned off the Key Tone but the sound is still there as loud as ever.
I live in an apartment and it is beginning to cause a noise pollution problem.

Thank you, XXXXX
