I have to sleep with noise. Not loud ones, but at least music. I don't know why, but that's the only way I can fall asleep unless I'm drunk (which that rarely happens now). What about you? Do you need some kind of noise to fall asleep?

I like to have sounds of nature when I sleep, if to silent, I am nervous. I can easy sleep with TV on, but I don't watch TV...

Yeah, I feel the same way too about the silence. I have a hard time to sleep when I'm over at someoneelse's house. I try to sleep before everyone else just so I can still hear them.

No I can not sleep with my TV on. I have to have complete silence while I'm trying to sleep. I even wear ear plugs while I sleep or I will never be able to fall asleep.

My husband and I are both really bad about falling asleep watching TV. I know that it is a waste of energy and we try to turn it off before falling asleep, but probably 9 times out of 10 we leave it on. My husband always has to have at least a fan running all night long, has since he was a kid. Winter, summer, spring and fall! But, after 15 years I have grown used to that.

I have to have noise too. Not too loud though. The tv and a fan help. Sometimes I start the dryer before I go to bed.

Yes. I can sleep with the tv on. But it not that I cant sleep without TV. At times, when I was tired on that day, I will fall asleep without my knowledge. TV cant really disturb my sleep at all. Lucky though.

No, I just can't. I always have my television off running whenever it's time for me to go sleep. It bothers me when i'm dozing out sleeping while at the same time television is running on...it's just it makes too much noise in my ears. So that's why I always make it sure that whenever I'm finished watching t.v., then i'll turned it off immediately after.

No I don't like any noise during my sleep. I even do not like whispering of any one. During sleep, if someone even talks loudly, I get up and waste my balance night (Unless I am drunk, which is almost regular)
