Without pictures of your mom it's impossible to say.

Even small amounts of light can noticeably impact your sleep quality; being exposed to blue light (super white, not warm) before bed is also bad for sleep quality.

Other than that, psychological associations are affected. Your mind will associate your bedroom with sleep (good) and playing on your computer (bad, when mixed with the sleep association).

However there are no direct negative repercussions I can think of, and the 2 things above are not terrible by any means... I am 25 years old, reasonably succesful , and have had a gaming computer in my bedroom since 17.

Hope that helps with your question.

No, but if you have bright blue lights coming from your computer that could reduce your melatonin levels. That could make it harder to sleep.

Being in the same room with a a PC is perfectly safe, apart from extreme cases, such as if you fall and put your head through the monitor screen, or the PC falls onto your foot, etc.

However, PCs do generate a fair amount of heat, especially if it's a gaming PC, so if you leave it on overnight, and it's a warm night anyway, then you might find the heat output from the PC uncomfortable. But the PC doesn't output harmful radiation at all, none of it's components do.

Actually, one time where the PC in your room might be harmful is if you get too addicted to a game (or 'net surfing, Skype, or whatever, and it causes you to lose sleep from using the PC too much. But the PC itself can't harm you - trust me, I work in a room full of PCs all day, and both my desktops are in my bedroom (I need two as one is used for testing parts when I'm fixing someone's PC), and one is often on all night even when I sleep.

Those lights inside your computer? I hope they're not blue. If they're blue, it's actually Cherenkov radiation.

How can we know that you haven't mutated or developed any odd quirks while being EXPOSED to your PCs? Eeeh? I bet you're full of tumors and pray to the fallen god daily/nightly!

When I moved I moved all of my electronics from my bedroom to its own room.

I've been sleeping a lot better. It also makes me less likely to just toss on the TV or something when I can't sleep because I have to actually get up and go into a different room.
