Called Applecare about the issue of faces running non-stop. I was advised at a one-to-one session that I should allow iPhoto to keep searching for faces through all 8500 of my pictures, leaving the computer running all night if necessary. I allowed the iPhoto to run for 3 days and nights and iPhoto faces was still running without coming up with a single face.

I phoned Applecare and the lady had not heard of the problem before. She attempted a few methods of trying to get it to work right -- no luck. She then checked with a senior advisor who sent me into "pictures" on my computer where I would find two applications for "faces" and they then had me drag them to the trash. The faces I had marked went away, but iPhoto is still running some sort of scan over my photos. I think the Faces feature is worthless, and I hope it doesn't do harm to my brand new computer.
