    iSight won't turn off...
    When I turned on my Macbook this morning, I noticed...hey...why is the iSight on? and it's still on. from the grey apple to login window to desktop, on all the time. I can't access photobooth or iChat. this is annoying, as well as the fact that the machine seems slow as a turtle.

    EDITED TO ADD:

    No processes that could be using it. Restarting doesn't work.

    And what do you mean by on? Does the green light stay on? Maybe the government hacked into it! You better leave yourself alone until we get this fixed!

    a restart didn't work?

    try shutting down and resetting the pram (battery out, hold power button down for at least 5 sec) then pop the battery back in and restart.

    see if that works.
