So /adv/
Ive heard some rumors that sleeping in same room with your computer while its ON is harmfull and can cause cancer, I dont believe in this cancer story but is it acctually harmfull ? To sleep near your computer while it is running ? (monitors are ofc OFF, just the pc is running)

If it was, then what difference would it make if you were asleep? Computers in general would be dangerous to be around, don't you think?

I really doubt it. We have (inter)national safety standards for a reason, man.

Computers do emit an extremely small amount of electromagnetic radiation when they're turned on. That is a fact.

But it is hard to understate the size of that dose. Using a CRT monitor for a whole month gives you less of a dose of radiation than eating one banana does.

Or, to put it another way, fib fact: all living things emit a small amount of radiation too. Sleeping next to a computer gives you less of a dose of radiation than sleeping next to a person. But you never hear of spouses sleeping with lead sheets between them. The reason for this is simple: doses that tiny are safe. And so is sleeping in the same room as a computer.

Um, fun fact, not fib fact. That was an... unfortunate... typo.

yes.

its been proven that you sleep better when there arent blinking lights and electronic interference. so turning your computer off can theoretically make you fall asleep faster and sleep harder.

This much is true. Ideally, you shouldn't look at backlit (LCD) or luminous CRT, OLED, plasma, etc) screens for an hour before bed, because that kind of blue-tinted light can fuck with your sleep. E-ink is okay, as are LCDs with no built-in light source.

you can fix this using a program called f.lux

i downloaded it to my home computer. it basically adjusts the lighting of your computer for the time of the day, mimicing the kind of light you'd see at night. its helped me fall asleep easier.

About as dangerous as sitting to close to the TV.

Having lights on while you are sleeping is proven to cause prostate cancer actually.
