    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.

    and to make it work with SL:


    (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.
