How to learn guitar without the guitar?

I've been playing guitar for about a year. I practice when I can but I spend a fair amount of time sitting around watching TV when I can't have the guitar in my hands but I do have my laptop handy and I feel like I could be using this time to learn some things that don't strictly require me to be playing an instrument.

I'd like to learn more music theory, how to read sheet music, where the notes are located on the neck, how chords are put together, how to play a new chord without having to look the fingering on some chart, how to translate things into different keys, and probably some other things that I don't know about or am forgetting.
I get that a lot of these things are much easier to learn with the guitar in my hands and I do that as much as I can but I'd like to find some resources (websites, software, books, games, whatever) that I can use during those times when I can't play an instrument or otherwise make a lot of noise that I can then put into practice the next time I have a chance to play.
