You might want to consider purchasing some of the plastic shelf labels
(available through Demco and others).  These are generally between 3/4" to
1" in height and can be purchased in sections that range between 3" to 6" in
length.  You could attach the 6" shelf label to the top of the monitor and
then just insert a strip that states:
   THIS COMPUTER RESERVED TODAY:  1:00 p.m. -3:00 p.m.

The labels come with inserts already but you can always just use regular
printer paper and create your own inserts when needed.  (I've used the Avery
label templates to quickly create a label that can be inserted into the
label holder.)

Here are a couple of examples:

Another option would be to purchase the small acrylic picture frames (from
places like Target, Wal-Mart, Dollar Store, etc.) --- I've seen small ones
that are between 2" x 3" and even smaller----and attach the adhesive Velcro
to the top of the monitor and then to the frame.  You could insert a note in
the frame and attach it to the monitor's top when you need to reserve the
computer and then remove it once the session is finished.

Just a few suggestions!  Good luck!

"It is more than ironic that school districts are willing to spend
hundreds of thousands of dollars on reading programs and staff
development which have had limited success in boosting test scores,
but are unwilling to invest in school library programs that show direct
correlations to student success."

~ Douglas Achterman,  2008 Study of California School Libraries
