    Really simple.

    Just state your general "bed" time

    When you usually stop using your mac

    And your grade level!

    I just wanna see how people end their days...AND MAC DAYS! :D.

    I'm a freshman (9th grade) and In usually go to bed around 12 or 1. Not to say I'm on my Mac til then. Usually I get off my iBook around 9 or 10, and then get on my PC for the rest of the night. (easier for me to use a desktop at night)

    For those of us who aren't in the know with all these, frankly odd, terms such as sophomore and freshman can someone explain.

    Or alternatively you could just post your age.

    High school, at least here in the states, is four years long, from grades 9 to 12. Each year is referred to as a name. Here's the list:

    1st year: Freshman
    2nd year: Sophomore
    3rd year: Junior
    4th year: Senior

    Well, it doesn't always happen like this (Someone starting school a year early or late obviously wouldn't fit in this description) but generally:

    Freshman: 14-15
    Sophomore: 15-16
    Junior:16-17
    Senior:17-18

    I try to be asleep by 9:30 or 10. 12 or later and I'm totally exhausted. Something about getting up at 5 to go to work makes one value sleep. Oh, and I'm just shy of 19.

    MAC Bed Time

    I'm 27, have an associates in Computer Sciences and my MAC goes to bed at 4:30pm every day because I only have it at work. I usually goto bed around 11pm-12am.

    I'm not sure if my MAC goes to bed really because when I leave work for the day I just close the lid on my ibook and plug it into the charger. It's an old 12" G4 1.2Ghz with 256mb memory. I like it better than a windoze box because "hibernation" just works without borking the system and it doesn't take forever to come back from sleeping since I have it in and out of my small travel bag all day long since I hop from client to client serving their computer repair requirements. So yea, if a windoze box knew how to sleep/hybernate properly I would use a PC but it seems like windows can't do anything good at all so bleh. That and the G4 doesn't get hot at all, its just an awesome machine. :)

    Im in 8th grade, but I only have one more day left (Finals.......) until 9th/high school! :D

    I am usually in bed between 10-11, mostly because my dad has a hissy fit about me not getting in bed on time.

    My iBook is used till I go to bed. I usually use it while Im brushing too. :p

    Enjoy your last day, my friend. Next year, you're one of the "fishes".;) A very small fish, I might add, compared to those seniors.:D

    My iBook can run for about four or five hours before it gets hot enough to nearly burn me, and thats when I shut it down for the night. I'm planning to get a PowerMac G3 B&W for a "Night Machine" to replace my PC in that duty, but things cost money, and I need to save up for an iPod first. :)

    Well I am over 18 now, but when I was in Highschool, I was usually in bed by around 11pm. I usually used the computer up until 10pm and then read or did other things.

    I'm a 17-year-old junior. I usually stop using my Mac right before bed; around 11:30-12:30. I go to sleep abou 10 minutes I get off of my Mac, unless I get stuck watching something interesting in the living room. Bedtime is usually 12:30.

    Trust me it isn't that bad. I'm a senior now and I don't think most even bother picking on the freshman. It's really immature, because 4 years ago I was in your shoes. The was this whole "Freshman Friday" thing going around the school where the seniors would dump the freshman in garbage cans, but that never happens. Once you start meeting new people and getting into the whole high school experience, you'll love it.

    Oh back on subject, I just turned 18 and my bed time is usually 11:30-1:00 depending on how tired I am. When I'm not at work, I get on my MacBook at 12 in the afternoon, and use it on and off until 11 at night. If I have to work that day, I get off at 5:30 and start using the MB at 6 and won't get off until 10 or 11.

    As mentioned earlier, I'm a senior.

    I'm a good boy! :D I usually get to bed around 10:30 on school nights, and that's also when I stop using my Mac, though sometimes I use it to play some soothing music to help me sleep. I'm a high school senior.

    Trust me, as least where I go to school, it isn't bad at all. I'm just finishing up my freshman year, and seriosly, the seniors don't really care lol. I haven't heard of any freshman getting beat up or any of that.
