    When you unplug the headphones, is there a red light shining out from the headphone port? If so, the optical-out trigger is stuck in the "on" position. It's fairly normal. Read around on google/around here, you can fix it being careful with a thin toothpick or something of the like.

    This happens with my aluminum macbook, too when I plug in my surround sound and headphones too.
