    What a wonderful idea!

    I don't know if they do, but if they do I wonder what they dream about? Pondering life, love and why we bought those shoes online today? tongue

    Hmmmm....Although my computers chose not to answer this question, one movie tells the story of computer who did that and more.

    In "Electric Dreams", (1980's), a hapless young man buys a computer to automate his home and it not only takes over the apartment, it tries to steal his girlfriend....and definitely dreams.  (This is a classic movie, with an addictive sound track)

    Similar question was asked by Philip K. Dick. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
    Try reading this book. It's great.
    Speaking about dreams, computers do not dream. Yes, you can send them to sleep, but I doubt they are dreaming.
