In brief: Not really

Spending too much time in front of computer should not cause sleepiness.
However, people who spend too much time in front of the computer may decrease time in bed and get sleep deprived, which makes them sleepy. Also, people who are sleepy (for any reason) will tend to doze off when inactive, as when stilling in front of the computer.
