it actually seems to be on for good - anyone have any suggestions?
Leave it unplugged for a day, and then see what happens when you plug it back in. And... close the lens.

Lars, I think the OP might be referring to the built-in iSight on the MacBook.
Whoops! Missed that part. Thanks for that. :)

In that case, try leaving the unit off for a few hours (unplugged, battery out). On startup thereafter, zap the PRAM twice, and see what the end result is.

As well, is this happening while under Windows? (I ask becasue it's a known issue under Windows with the iSight camera or light always being on.)

Resetting your Mac's PRAM and NVRAM

Nope it's actually happening under Mac OS.

I'll give it a try tonight, thanks!
