Hi guys, any idea how to turn off a webcam without having to turn off the computer. When I turn mine on it will only close down (go off) if I turn the computer off and re-start it which is getting really annoying now. I cannot find anything in the literature that came with the webcam so would appreciate any help. It is a Creative wevcam with a clip for top of monitor. Need more details I will find them for you. Thanks in advance.
I have four programs in which I use my webcam (normally a webcam is never switched off anyway) - Skype has 'Start my Video' and 'Stop my Video' - DV Camera Manager is just as per my first Response above, as is Pure Motion and WinTV Amcap.
