Are you awakened by an electronic alarm (clock, music, phone, etc) most days?

Weird, but never. Reliable internal clock...and an early rising husband. Oh, and the dog (:0)

I've been using alarms lately as backups. I tend to wake up sometime before them by up to 20 minutes.

I used to use an alarm before I had kids!

I use my phone for my 5 alarms, and each alarm plays a different snippet of some of my favorite songs. By the time I hear the last one I'm generally more conscious and I know that sound means it's go time. I change all of the alarm tones once a month to make sure I don't get too used to them.

@Jezebel Not everyone consciously hears their alarm at first. Other people need to be woken up gradually, as coming out of deep sleep can be jarring. I myself am a light sleeper but being woken up suddenly and having to function right away makes me nauseous. I set 5 alarms so as to prevent this.

I'm like Cosmo Kramer I have an internal alarm. I wake up at 6:45 every morning without fail. 

I don't use an alarm -- naturally wake up when the sun rises.

09/16/11 3:32 pm

I never use an alarm... great internal clock I don't know why I just wake up when I need to...

09/16/11 12:11 am

I just leave the blinds up and normally wake with the sun, occasionally my clock alarm plays back up.

09/15/11 11:43 pm

Interesting. I'll look into that. Thank you:

09/15/11 10:38 pm

Also, I use two alarm clocks and the alarm on my phone. Any less and I sleep right through it.

@TH3SHURIF There used to be an app for that. It was called holywars (many religious debates took place there). Unfortunately, that app has been left in a state of disrepair by it's developer.

I can't believe all the people that use snooze more than once. Wow, just get up already

My phone wakes me up. Every morning up at 5 for a run.

09/15/11 5:24 pm

That'd be cool if this app went global and we had an interactive 3D model of the earth to see what place votes what.

09/15/11 5:23 pm

Two on my iPod and one on the ihome. I'm a heavy sleeper

09/15/11 5:12 pm

I could not function without some sound waking me up! Have 3 types of alarms( clock,phone, and iPod) and click snooze button until half hour after I was suppose to wake up. I hate mornings ;(

If I didn't have an alarm clock for weekdays...I'd be screwed!

What's up with Hawaii? Superior Circadian rhythms?

Tony, can you make a SOH Internet forum, so that we can bash each other more conveniently. this will be a good thing IMO.

My old phone had Beethoven's 8th sonata as a built in alarm I could use. Ahhhhh. The only thing I miss about that phone.

LOL gave me an idea!!! I love your wife's way of thinking. My fiancee has one of those old bell alarms top. The one where that metal thing moves between two dingers. I LOATHE that thing!

@Gayisokay...I know exactly what you are saying. Every time I hear one on TV my heart starts racing!

My fiancee sets his 2 hours in advance then hits snooze every 9 minutes. He has 2 alarms and he set the TV to come on at 5 a.m. at the loudest volume. I don't usually need my alarm because I'm up way before the time I need to be. He says, "how can you wake up to that? I sleep right through it."

09/15/11 6:24 am

Thank God for naps, when you can make 'em happen :)

Krfoster, I empathize, dear - been doing a lot of that myself lately - hang in there!

until after lunch when he wakes up. When the last Perseid Meteor shower happened both of my alarms were going for over 2 minutes before I awoke.

Checked to see how much sleep the average teen needs. At least when he told me to set my alarm for 9 hours and 15 minutes he gave me the upper end of the spectrum, although my mom tends to be up even before that (I either see my dad when I wake up and then he goes to bed before breakfast, or not...

Tocky? He'd probably break the first time he tried an 8 foot fall off of my bed :)

I rarely sleep past 0700, even if I went to bed at 0200. I try to go to bed by 2000 and therefore wake up before 0600 most of the time without an alarm. However, due to stuff I need to get done, my dad recently...

I wake up at 4:55! GO MARCHING BAND! gotta love it :) :)

09/15/11 5:27 am

My iPhone has never failed me. Funny, I don't have a real job but I'm the one up at 5:00 am to go run, cook breakfast, and wake everyone else. I should probably go on strike now that I think about it!

09/15/11 4:27 am

Gotta get up & get the kiddos to school in the morning so yes. Sucks that it will go off 2 hours from now & I can't sleep as usual.

09/15/11 3:47 am

Yes, or I'd be 3 hours late everyday and no I do get near enough sleep. Work week + OT + working on my Masters =| Someday, maybe! I hope. Please.
