My camera is always active and it shuts down(led on camera) when I open-close cheese web-camera program. Is someone using my camera or just a bug? I have heard that many can control web-cameras. On windows it is working fine! Web camera is genius facecam 113. How to stop the application doing this?

If you think that someone is using your camera, you should probably disconnect from the Internet just to see if it stops. If it doesn't, then it's probably a program on your computer, or perhaps a compatibility problem since on Windows it behaves differently.
