I look at the sheet. I've been playing so long that I really know the feel of the keyboard well. When I know the music I tend to play with my eyes closed. Looking at the keys usually makes me mess up.

This is just coming from me, since I usually just stare at the music. I know my piano like the back of my hand. Once you get the feel of the keys, sheet all the way. You'll have no reason to be staring down at your fingers. Your fingers will know the way.
But if you're still a novice and don't know where your keys are, you should be looking at the keys. And the sheet music. At the same time.—

I find that if i relax and trust my hands, they'll know where to play providing iv'e memorised the music.
For new pieces or pieces that i havent spent much time on i'll focus on the music sheets. Otherwise i look at the keys all the time.Ghost in the shell am the bestest anime and you know it is

I just glance at one or two bars, try to memorize them, and then look at the piano...I'm better at memorization than reading music, actually...especially for piano. I find it hard to read two staffs at once...
Maybe I'm a devil inside...

more or less i'm like July's style.. i keep on looking at the keys while playing it over and over again until i've memorized that measure until i get the whole piece
i've read a book that says something about it's more important to learn from the line not the note name, somehow i can understand what it said

I look at the sheet music cause I've played piano for a while and I know where the heys are. I agree with methodx's ...well, method if your are a novice.

I'm horrible at sight reading on piano, so i tend to go really slowly, one or two bars at a time. When its a piece I have memorized, I'm usually looking at the keys too. I guess I kinda have a feel for the keys with my right hand, but I'm always staring at my left hand, especially when finishing an arpeggio(sp?) and then having to jump back down to the other end to start another one
i really need to work on sight reading
