How to Appear Busy While Using a Computer

If you have an active assignment, keep it in the task bar and prepare to fastclick to it at a second's notice.
Intersperse work with downtime by working for a few moments followed by IMing, Facebooking, Googling, or whatever thing you do. This way you relax and do your job at the same time.
Write a Wikihow on something you know. It looks like work, and takes a good amount of typing to do. It's a perfect cover.
If you're at home with a laptop then try sitting with your back to a wall. Then no one can see what you're doing. Do a lot of typing that looks productive.
Make sure that even if you aren't doing much work, have something that looks like work open, such as an end of quarter PowerPoint or something of the sort.
