    I pieced together what seems like a MBP hum problem band aid fix. No definite hardware fixes seem to be found, and this seems like the next best thing. It goes:

    1. set up spaces in System Preferences to dedicate a space for PhotoBooth. I use space 6 so the program runs out of sight.

    2. In Accounts, name PhotoBooth as a login item, which will then open in the hidden space.

    Since creating this pref, I haven't had a problem with the hum. Please share your experience so, perhaps we can refine the method. Good luck.

    (Python is already installed on Macs. You would just have to figure out how to make the script run on login.)

    I don't have any problem with mine, so I can't test any of these. Or maybe it's just that Firefox always uses >10% CPU since I tend to leave lots of tabs open.
