so I'm running Kubuntu/ubuntu 9.10 on my Inspiron 1525 and randomly a few days ago the blue light for my webcam flashes once.
it doesnt do it in a timed way, (I've tried keeping track between flash) and they very from 5 mintues to 35 minutes in between.

its the blue light that stays solidly on when I'm using my webcam, but when the webcam is turned off so is the blue light. except for the random flashes

does anyone have any idea whats going on?
