My spider does nothing all day - what is wrong ?
 
Absolutely nothing ! Spiders that sit there, not moving, are, generally speaking, perfectly content. Perfect 'happy spider' pose is with legs spread out evenly, and palps resting on the ground. They 'look' relaxed, and if this is the normal state of your spider, then you are doing your job as keeper well.
 
Spiders that are less happy, or don't like their conditions will appear more agitated, move around more, climb excessively, and find it difficult to get comfortable.  Over time, if they are forced to endure unsuitable conditions they may become uncharacteristically stressed, aggressive or flighty.
