Default blue screen for laptop to help with sleep?

I have seen several members here talk about putting a screen of some kind on their laptop or computer so that it does not disturb your sleep.

I noticed I can't go on my laptop anything after about 8pm or so or it will disturb my sleep.

Is there a special screen you can put on your laptop so it won't disturb your sleep?

What do you mean by "special screen"?

For anyone else wondering you can use f.lux, which you can download for free right here: f.lux: software to make your life better. It's great.

agree: i have f.lux on my MacBook and you can set the start time and end time; also, from amazon or other places, you can order orange blue-blocking glasses that filter out all the light from tv, computer and phone. i have a reminder on my phone at 6pm nightly to put on my orange glasses and wear them until i take my meds for sleep. a lot of research says they work.

Best just not to use the computer before bed time. Just reading it can disrupt your sleep.
