There are tons of posts on this problem. I am just looking into it myself, as mine has the same problem and my Applecare warranty expires next week. Try searching on "cracked case" or similar things.

Authorized Apple dealers and service providers will replace—at no cost—the keyboard and case top assembly of a white non-unibody MacBook for this issue, so long as your machine is not more than 3 years old and does not exhibit what Apple terms customer abuse, including spill damage. Your machine does not have to be covered by the initial one-year warranty, or by an AppleCare extension to qualify. There are no parts or labor charges associated with this replacement.
This program is entirely different from a similar program which replaced white keyboard and case top assemblies which became discolored because of the interaction with the plastic they were constructed of, and the environment. That original program to address discoloration has expired.PowerBook G4 12 inch 1.5 GHz 1280 meg 80 gig SuperDrive, Mac OS X (10.4.11), coupled with a UMA-capable Nokia 7510 Supernova and T-Mobile HotSpot™ @Home
