    There is an option in the Panel that has the system sounds. At the bottom is a box to check to have startup sounds.

    See screenshot from my Win 8.1 system

    but can i select the sound ?
    and there is only the option for the startup or is there an option to add a sound when i log off/shut down ?

    It can be turned on but there's no way (that I know of) to assign sound to it. Option to assign it is greyed out. It's fixed in W10TP.

    If it's not on the list of already installed sounds, I could not see a way to do it.

    No guarantee that this is still current but it may work

    Make sure you fully back-up the registry before you start, just in case

    Thanks but I don't think it's worth the risk.

    Unfortunately, that will add the sound events back into "Sounds" and let you set them, but they do not actually work or play.
