I find that sometimes when I turn on my notebook the iSight green light comes on automatically. Then when I go to Photobooth I get a black screen and Image Capture says 'No Image Capture Device Connected'.

Sometimes all it takes to solve the problem is to restart the notebook but most of the time I have to turn it off for about 20 minutes before I restart it.

Does anyone know what the problem might be?

Sounds like a hardware recognition problem. Bring it into your local apple store if it's still under warranty.

Yes my name is Jaguar.
No, it is not a joke.
I don't find your "I'm a cheetah." joke funny.

I've had this issue a few times and have heard of others having it also , I think its just a normal macbook issue but turning the macbook off and removing the battery and putting it back in should fix it and if it happens again just do it again .

Thanks for the advice. I tried taking out the battery and putting it back in but it only solves the problem for a matter of days. I think I'll bring it to an apple store before my cover plan expires to see if they can sort it out.
