    My computer is rarely turned off. for the past 10 years, my pc has always been on, maybe in 2 weeks its off for about 5-10 hours and that's it. I play MMO's so I need to have it on when vending, farming or power leveling even when I am at work.

    That sounds like what I sometimes do when I have finished my online work and have already done my levelling in WoW. I would google at random. Sometimes I do come across some gems on such walkabouts.

    I normally spend about seven hours a day on my computer to watching films, reading forums and playing online games.

    I spend way too much time in front of the computer! Mine would probably be 5-8 and most of that time is just spent playing games or other non-productive activities. I wonder how much time in my life I have spent in total on the computer.

    I waste a lot of time on my computer. Pretty much all day when we have no school or homework. The bad thing is that none of the stuff I do is actually useful. I usually just play games, surf/browse, reddit, etc.

    I spend about 4-8 everyday, but that's really just browsing or playing TF2. Also, some days it's less considering if I have any other plans.

    If ever source of internet counts i'd say about 8 hours per day and if it's based on my laptop, then I spend about 5 hours a day online. It sound so long when written down, but the time quickly passes.

    I have a day job 6 days a week but during that time zI surf the web with my Android. At night and on my day off I am either out with friends or alone learning about computer stuff.

    I guestimate around 4 to 8 hours a day or more.

    Lets just say that I'm spending more time on my pc than I should. I'm a student,father and I know I should be spending less than 3-4 hours per day,but I'm actually doing 7 hours per day ,which is really bad... :/

    I generally spend about 4-6 hours a day on the computer doing various things. But overall I really can't complain technology is getting more advanced everyday and I am a very technological person I'm hooked on the new gadgets and toys that come out everyday and I tend to spend more and more time playing with them.

    Since I am looking at a computer all day at work, I will generally spend about 6 hours at work on the computer. When I get home, I'm usually working on my website trying to build more traffic so I spend about 3 hours doing that. I never have a problem with headaches or anything like that since I have good sitting posture and exercise daily.

    Did that 8-10 hr/day thing for five years before I burnt out. Average about 4/day, now -- sometimes more, sometimes not at all.

    I think it will depend on how far you are away from the computer you are looking at and many other factors.

    8-10 a day can be bad, but their hasn't been any study linking to serious injury or anything like that.

    Too many. I work at a computer all day, 7+ hours.

    At home, I use the computer for my web business, probably 2 more hours.

    I try to eat, sleep and exercise in the remaining hours of the day.

    I made it a goal of mine to cut computer hours this month, and i've been doing pretty well. Unless I am working, I spends about two hours per day on the computer. I used to spend way too much time doing things that wasn't important.

    Just two hours? That's fantastic! In just two hours, I haven't even finished reading all the latest news online. I presume you don't use your computer to make a living.
