    Those little plastic plug covers should be fine.

    Not to sound mean, but you're worrying about nothing. Unless you plan on getting large amounts of liquid near the outlet, having your bed there isn't going to be a fire or shock hazard. If you're really paranoid, you could switch the outlet to a GFCI outlet. The only way fire would result is if something plugged into it shorted out, so if nothing's plugged into it, and nobody has tampered with the outlet, you'll be fine.

    I don't believe it - I'm on my THIRD PS3, and my FIRST XBOX360. What the heck?

    My father is the General Manager of a good size city's Utility Company, so he hears some interesting stories about peoples electrical eccentricities.

    One old lady was so scared of her electric outlets. She thought that electicity would just fall out of the outlet if nothing was plugged in to it. So everyoutlet in her house had something plugged into it.

    As long as nothing is plugged into it you are fine. If you do plan on having something plugged in there and that worries you, you should have an electrician switch the breaker for that circuit to an Arc-Fault Protecting breaker. That is exactly what they were designed for. A GFCI will do a fine job of making sure you don't get electrocuted, but it will likely not do anything to prevent a fire in that condition.
