If i've spent a day debugging someone's software for them, then I don't feel like firing up the computer when I get home and spending more time looking at a screen and writing code.  Likewise with tasks like PCB tracking, parts kitting, soldering, etc.  If you spend your working day doing it to get paid, then what was an enjoyable hobby before can start to feel a little bit like just doing more work in the evenings!

Very familiar indeed! During my PhD my mind was so saturated with work that I didn't enjoy many of my hobbies. Especially the more creative aspects, making decisions, etc were hard. Now the PhD is done hobbies are becoming more interesting again. Even to a degree that I'm considering to try and make a living out of it :).
