    I have a MacBook and my built-in iSight keeps freezing after a while when i'm using it. I try to force quit but unable to, the only way is to re-boot, but it still freezes when I use it. It only seems to happen on Photo Booth, other applications are fine. Does anyone else have the same problem or know how to fix it?

    This could be a long shot, but it worked when my friend's original rev Intel iMac didn't even recognize the iSight... try resetting the SMC.

    Shut down, then unplug your computer. I'd leave it unplugged about a minute, then give the power button a push with it unplugged. Plug it back it, turn it on and hopefully that should work!

    Also, maybe try resetting the PRAM first (option+:apple:+p+r) while booting prior to resetting the SMC.
