...Anyone else suffer from this (perhaps rare!) condition? Seriously, I've not had a decent nights kip since I got this thing! Does the novelty ever wear off or am i doomed to have the bags of doom under my eyes forever?

Yours sincerely,

Sleepless in Hertfordshire x

I often stay up late messing with my Mac. Usually it's either ripping, sorting, organizing or web surfing. I'm not sure how much different that would be if I used a PC though...

I'm still stoked that I have a mac, and everyday i'm on it, perhaps too much. I can't wait until I get my macbook with leopard on it next year before I go to college.

Judging by the post numbers of Flic and Mikeyman, I'd say you both have a real addiction and may need professional help ;)

Seek out help at your local Apple store during the next AA (Apple Anonymous) meeting.

I have had my mac for at least 10 years and I still get insomnia when I find something really good to read on it.
The excitement never goes away. lol

Me thinks this is the most likely scenario!

At least I'm not the only one with Mac Insomnia, we need to start a support group but I fear that would just make me lose more sleep ;)

I suggest staring at a hypnotizing screen saver and doing a single yoga pose until you fall asleep.
