View Full Version : Trouble falling asleep? Staring at screens 'til late?

I've noticed that being on my computer late keeps me from falling asleep. I have to mess around for an hour or so after I turn it off; only then can I fall asleep. People say it's because the kind of light that computer screens emit is like sunlight and it's blue-ish and it keeps you awake.

So there's this app that tracks sunrise and sunset times based on your location. It then dims and gives your computer screen a yellow-y hue. Whatever hue means.

I haven't tried it yet but I have it installed. Tell me how it works for you.

tl;dr: This might help you go to sleep.

Just downloaded and tried it. It feels pretty nice actually takes a few mins to get used to the not too bright screen but this might save a bit on my eyes.

Giving this a go for a while... There's a possibility this post found the reason behind my irregular and impossible sleep schedule. In other words, I'm staring at my computer all day. :P

Many thanks for sharing, especially if it helps.

For me it doesn't matter i always fall asleep late nights watching anime with no problem, it's probably because my eyes get tired of reading all day

Been nearly a month since I started using it... I'll reiterate what Rev said.. The low-ish orange-ish tint is quite relaxing...

Sleep-Wise, I'm not sure. But if it doesn't help keep my eyes working, nothing else will :P

Don't panic its safe, i like how it uses Google maps to give you the correct color and that you can adjust the intensity of the orange and normal screen color/brightness.

Not sure if this is going to help me sleep... I become very sleepy when the clock hits midnight. But thanks to this my monitor looks more relaxing now. And also thanks to this program, I discovered a hidden image on my wallpaper.
