Default Laptop camera

I noticed when my Dell Studio laptop is in sleep mode that the led light to the camera is still on. Does that mean it's still recording or the camera is still on?

Wrong forum section. But generally yes, that does mean the camera is on. Does it mean it is recording? Not necessarily.

Do you have an antivirus program on your computer?

Does the camera have any programs of its own that may be on?
