    every so often my screen flickers like iPhoto does when it takes a picture though the whole thing doesnt go white just the sides, is somone remotely controlling my isight camera? btw the green light doesnt go on.

    No, you're not hacked, it sounds like a loose video connection. Call/bring it in to Apple.

    No you are not hacked. Who would want to take a picture of you? :D

    It could be your graphics card playing up or even your logic board. Not sure but it doesnt sound good.

    i know what you mean, that happened to me a few weeks ago when i was using ichat, when i would send a message, i would get a white flash. it was weird because it was only when i would send a message. it has yet to happen again though

    If you go to System Preferences > Universal Access > Hearing and make sure the option "Flash screen when an alert sound occurs" is unticked.

    Hope this does the trick.
