Follow up question to my Snooze Button Question. How loud does the alarm clock need to be to wake you up? Mine has to be LOUD! Like loud enough to hear outside and through the house, how about you?

Actually less than normal.
When I use an alarm, which is seldom, I use my iPhone on vibrate. Then I wake up about a minute before it goes off and shut it off.

Oh how I envy deep sleepers! I set mine to the lowest volume (iPhone) with the gentlest possible sound and it wakes me easily.

I usually wake before an alarm, so I don't use one, and I don't like waking everyone else up at 5:30,

my roommates good damn alarm is the loudest thing I've ever heard it's like a normal alarm mixed with an air raid siren, and some how he never wakes up. He gets up at 5:45 every morning I don't have to wake up early but he wakes me up every day.

I put my alarm on the other side of the bedroom. That way I'm awake since I have to walk 15' to turn it off.

Try rigging up a Wile E. Coyote booby trap to the alarm... Mine was a popsicle stick under the alarm with fishing line tied to it, it went up to a series of eyehooks with a small cardboard box full of packing peanuts directly over my pillow.

Fair enough. But when it works, you can thank me ;)

Normal volume, single alarm. I awaken quite easily. Sometimes I awaken just a minute or two before the alarm.

One thing that I do is put my alarm in the bathroom so that I have to get up in order to turn it off. Helps to make sure that I'm not late for work.

Having a regular bed time helps too.
