Some studies say that using a computer before going to bed will effect your ability to fall asleep. This is because when using a computer you see many images/ideas, such as emails, ads, games, etc. Your brain must then process all these images, etc. which takes a lot of work, thus your body is not completely relaxed because there is so much going on inside your head. It has been recommended not to go on the computer for about 30-60 minutes before you plan to go to sleep, this way the brain can process it all before you need to sleep. Also, the light from the computer can "trick" your brain into thinking its daytime... hope this helps.
