Does using computers too long cause acne?

I'm having similar conditions as this guy. Anyways, i'm going to stop using computers for a month or two or use as less as i can.
My questions are: do you think that computer monitors cause acne and how can i limit my computer usage as i do homework on it?

My cousin and brother both had acne and never sat at a computer for more than 10 minutes a week. Although, those people sitting on there computers for 8 hours a day stuffing themselves with microwavable eats are asking for some acne.

The only thing I can see coming from this is the issue of people who spend too much time in front of things like computers and tvs. The lack of exercise and maybe poor diets could be creating an acne prone environment. *shrugs* I would love to see some articles and research on this.

Meaning: The more acne you have, the more time you spend on the computer (as to avoid people).

There's a link between acne and vitamin D? A vitamin D supplement daily is a better alternative to basking out in the sun without sunscreen.

I recently bought a new computer and a new high Res screen about 3 months ago. Before those months my acne was non existent. About 2 weeks or less from using my new computer I had cystic acne..something I hadn't dealt with in years.
Before I used a laptop.. but only for an hour or so a day and my face was never close to the screen. My new screen is sitting on a desk, probably less then a foot away from my face and is 24inches wide.
Because of my new toy I admittedly spend much more time behind my desk.
I think their could be a connection.. but to what extent?? Idk.
