    have nothing to do but

    Should we use "to + V", "Ving" or "V" after the phrase "have nothing to do but"? I've found all three usages on the internet.

    1. He has nothing to do but sleeping at home.--Ving
    2. I have nothing to do but go home.---V
    3. You have nothing to do but to convince yourself.--to V
