In brief: Yes, overstimulation
The sleep-wake cycle is linked, in part, to external light cues; staring into a bright monitor screen at 3am is one way to throw off your biological clock with great ease.
This, coupled with the increased stimulation involved with watching movies, listening to music, reading news, etc. Is simply not conducive towards initiating the sleep process.
