    This happened to mine which is now my sisters. I put it down to old age and continuous use.
    Do you often pull that side of the screen to open it and close it. That could be why.

    Long shot, but maybe gently but firmly forcing it back into line? The case on my VCR did this too and I just had to keep pressing down on it and one day it just clicked into place.

    I'd be careful though, an iBook is worth far more than a VCR, and its much more delicate too...

    Looks like the hinge inside might be broken. It was probably dropped :(
