My web cam which only comes on with Skype, comes on the whole time I have Ubuntu open.
How can I stop the light and thank you.

Check if you have any apps running that may use the webcam (khm, Skype or Cheese, or whatever). Restart. Should go away. Light = in use.

I know what you mean. This Ubuntu is in Oracle's VM so perhaps it is the VM that is keeping the light on. A direct download and installation Of Ubuntu would probably not keep the light on. I would have to contact oracle for that.
Skype was not running nor any thing else I can think of that would ask the light to be on.
