    After using iChat yesterday (Tiger), my iSight won't turn off. The program isn't running, nor is anything else that might try to use the camera (like delicious library). I eventually resorted to closing the lens cap to turn it off. But whenever I reopen the cap it's back on again.

    Anyone know how to fix this?

    Nothing is wrong. You turn the cap to turn it off and turn it again to open the lens.
    If you're that concerned, unplug it.

    Well then it's only now operating this way. Previously when I would quit iChat the green "on air" light would go out on the camera, and only turn on again when I re-opened iChat and clicked on the green camera icon.
