Well I have just "reproduced" my problem, and it seems that for now, I can confirm restarting my computer re-enables the webcam (Hibernate does not, on the other hand)
To clarify, this is not an issue where my laptop is turned on with the light or anything. This is a issue of making it STAY disabled in Device Manager!
I googled and it said it has something to do with Asus Smartlogon, but I uninstalled that looong ago!
So what's re-enabling my camera, and how to I keep it disabled?
Seems to re-enable when I plug in my AC adapter too... So how the heck do I prevent that!? :S It seems to do this while on power4gear entertainment battery mode... Any Advice?
