And I thought I was the only wacked out non-sleeper around here

That's an interesting habit.

I take one a week when I feel my sleep cycle is getting out of hand. If I didn't have a regular 8-5 job, I'd probably go to sleep at 3AM every night.

+1 on melatonin.

When I was in school, I'd need to take one about once a week to get my sleep cycle back on track. It's powerful stuff.

I'm usually in bed by 12:30 or 1a.m., although recently, it's been closer to 2 a.m. Up at 8:30a or 9a.

I have the opposite problem to some of the others -- my feet are hot much of the time, and that does cause me to fall asleep more slowly. But much of the time my sleep is aided by the numerous drinks I've had in the evening.

Be sure to get time-release stuff, which goes into your system slowly, otherwise you'll get a shot of it and it might knock you out quick only to wake up in 3 hours.

Normally 24:00 to 08:00. I need 8 hours, sometimes I can do with 7, I like a good 9 hours on weekends, but if I go biking at 06:00 or 07:00, I'm looking at less than 6 hours of sleep, sigh...

I go to sleep between 12 and 2, unless I'm out in which case I may be up till 4 or 5. I get up between 6 and 10, depending. I consumed with the idea that normalizing these hours will have a universal stabilizing effect on my life.

sorta 11 or 12ish. My new house gets morning sunlight, which has me waking up earlier than I would like. It also has a loud dog from one neighbour and construction from another, so it is kinda conspiring to get me up early. This is not ideal, as I suck at sleeping. Always have. I am not a good sleeper, wake up at least 2 or 3 times a night every night.

See, i just go to bed at the same times every night regardless of when i have to wake up. Even if i pull an all nighter for a big paper, i still go to bed around midnight the following evening. I don't know, it's more of a don't want to waste the hours kinda thing.

I have the same problem. Once my feet get cold, I get lower leg cramps and I'm up all night. Mine is related to Raynaud's phenomenon

Now I stretch my legs really well just before bed every night to get blood flowing, and if it's going to be cold, I wear pj pants with the ankles tucked into warm socks. (it keeps heat in)

Normally.... Bed time is at around 11:30 - 12. I have to be strict and force myself to go to bed then, or I will stay up all night and feel like poop when the sun comes up.

between 10 and 11, unless I have something going on at the time. Then again I'm up 4, 4:30.

The worst was my first semester of b-school - up at 3 a.m. to study, 4 a.m. on the roads, 7 a.m. off to work. Off work at 5, at school by 6. Home at 10 p.m. Repeat. Finally scaled back the running and my grades picked up.

Me too, minus the slipper thing and usually only in winter (in this extremely drafty old house).

I worked overnight and swing shifts from my mid 20's to mid 30's and it pretty much ruined any semblance of a sleep pattern. I'm on a very inconsistent rotation of 18-20 on and 6-8 off with the occasional 12 hr coma when I'm feeling sleep deprived. Always go for the 10 or 12 hours sleep after a sincere attempt at partying though.
