    I have a white macbook (the gen. before the unibody), everything works fine except that sometimes the isight camera turn on by itself.

    This sometimes happens immediately at the start up and other times when the system is already loaded. The result is the same, the isight camera doesn't work and when i try to use it i get simply a black screen.

    For to make it works again i need to shutdown the mac and sometimes even to remove the battery.

    I don't think it can be a Trojan or some virus since i switched to Snow few weeks ago doing a full installation from zero and this trouble still occur even with the new system.

    Any advice?

    I had exactly this on my whitebook.

    I couldnt solve it and neither could apple.

    They even replaced the logic board and it still kept happening.
