In this study, we will underline the phenomenon of school fatigue which has arisen in students from technical colleges. We interviewed 108 students from a technical college in Bacau and 91 students from Suceava. The young people completed a questionnaire with questions about the frequency of fatigue, passive resting and leisure (television and computer use). Fatigue is often present (34.17%), especially in students from Suceava, which suggests that there is a reduced sleep time per night (less than 7 hours). Most young people spend a lot of time in front of the TV screen (4-5 hours a day - 14.57%) and on the computer (4-5 hours a day - 20.10%), which exacerbates fatigue. In adolescents, current ways of spending leisure time should be carefully monitored, as there is a risk of excessive use, leading to the effects of overloading and computer addiction.
