I can’t remember which friend ask me this, but they asked me if it was dangerous to sleep with your laptop or tablet in bed? I was taken back by this as I was not really sure what they meant.
I assumed they were talking about the radio waves and the radiation a laptop or tablet might give off. The radiation from the wifi or cellular radio waves won’t do any danger to you. There is nothing to be afraid of when it comes to that kind of stuff.
But this did get me thinking, was there anything dangerous about falling asleep with computer, tablet or even cellphone in bed? About the only thing that does come up as being dangerous is the heat of the battery or heat vents of the computer.
The heat from these components on skin for 8 or more hours could leave a burn mark depending on how hot some electronics get. Most laptops and tablets will go in a sleep mode when in-active for a period of time. The older tech might not do this so it best to be cautious of this.
Generally there is nothing to worry about when going to sleep with your laptop. You have a better chance of you damaging it then it hurting you. That simple fact is why I say not to go to sleep with your laptop or tablet in the bed with you. I would be scared I’ll break the screen or something.
Even though you nothing can happen it would be best to not go to sleep with your computer or tablet in your bed because of the likely chance of you doing damage to it.
