    How do I use my iSight without the green light being turned on? I just wanna use it but not have the active green light on.

    Take the bezel off the display and cut the wire going to the light.

    The green light is an activity light for the camera. It comes on when the camera is on - that's how it works. If you don't want the light on then turn off the camera.

    It is if you're not going to tell her about it.

    Dunno about it being a sin but if there are other parties involved without complying to being filmed it's against the law.

    If it's wrong I don't wanna be right. There's gotta be some kind of little app or something that can disable the light right?
