thanks 4 the reply. i did search the form but couldnt find a way to turn off an unresponsive camera if. e.g. if the finder gets stuck we relaunch it, if a program is not responding we force quit it, if a cd is stuck we restart an while clicking on the mouse etc but what could be done to turn off the isight other than restarting the OS. is there a way to just force it to turn off?
