    I have a new white macbook 2.4GHz 160GB. does anyone know the functions of the two lights next to the webcam? when I have iphoto open, the right light fluoresces green, but I have yet to see the left light turn on. does anyone know what color it's supposed to be/when it should turn on/what function it serves?

    just want to make sure my mac is in working order. let me know, thanks!

    The other one is the microphone I think, not a light

    Indeed - it's a microphone.

    and the light is to let you know the camera is on.
