    Hello. This is really random, but I am a Junior in High School and must do an expiriment for my AP English 11 class. I have chosen to do a poll on total time spent on the computer and how much one sleeps to see if there is any correlation between the two. Here are the official questions:

    1. How much total time, non-job related, therefore, for entertainment, do you spend on the computer, on average, a day doing whatever (internet. IMing, music, video, photos, gaming)?
    2. How many hours do you sleep a day - total?
    3. How old are you?


    When answering, if possilbe, can you please just list the number and the answer like this:
    1. 4 hours
    2. 5 hours
    3. 16


    Thank you very much. I could not think of a better place to come than MacRumors because everyone is always willing to help (I know there will be some bias considering this is an internet poll, and since we are all Mac lovers, we tend to use our computers much more often!!).

    ^^ You are only ans old as you feel - age is a state of mind ;)


    1. 3 hours
    2. ~8 hours in the position to sleep (restless) - I would guess actual sleep at ~4-5 hours
    3. 36

    This is great. Hopefully, I will be able to get at least 50 results, so there will be some accuracy involved though thousands would really be needed.

    Regardless of how large your sample turns out the biggest factor that will throw off the accuracy of your data is the nature of your sample - an internet forum about computers. We are not representative of the general population for these types of questions.

    Well, since WoW came out . . .

    1.5-8
    2.3-5
    3.22

    For me there is a direct correlation, more WoW = less sleep and visa versa. I try to only play WoW in spare time, ie not let it get in the way of work or school, so that means late nights, and less sleep.

    Yeah, I know, but hopefully some of you are just casual people who happen to come across this thread randomly some how while just surfing the internet casually like you tend to do a couple times a week for a couple of hours. :rolleyes: . . . :)
