    Sound Input
    I regularly use Skype, especially for incoming calls via an online number.

    I use the slider in the Input section of Sound in System Preferences to set my level to maximum, using an iSight on Firewire.

    Every time I check, the level defaults to somewhere in the middle, so that people can't hear me properly until I set it again, for each call. Why doesn't it just keep it the way I set it?

    I am using Skype whatever and it seems to be retaining the setting. I don't use Skype much so I had to check. With both the internal mic and a USB headset the sound pref pane shows maximum for the Input level even if I close and reopen Skype.

    My system is retaining my setting too, though I don't use Skype. Try deleting the pref file for System Preferences. It may be corrupt.

    Holler back if that works, or doesn't.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
