I never left my stuff unattended at the law library unless I had someone sitting right next to it that was willing to watch it. We'd leave everything else strewn about in the quiet study areas or the cubicles, but our computers always came with us.
On a humorous/slightly disgusting note, I knew at least one kid who was a Party Poker fanatic that would make full use of the campus wireless network to continue playing poker -- even when he did have to get up from his cubicle to use the necessary.
