I don't like the TV or the radio on when I go to sleep, but I love the sound of a fan while I sleep.

I don't like the radio or tv when I sleep either. It tends to freak me out. I don't know if I incorporate what is going on into my dreams or something, but if I ever go to sleep with the news on, I end up waking up thinking my neighbor got shot or something!

the things we hear while we are sleeping will cause us to dream about them. like when, as you said, news about somebody dying for having been shot, will cause you to dream about it, too, only this time the victim is a neighbor of yours. once, i dreamed that my mother came in the deep of the night and she chatted with my sister while taking something to eat. as i wake up the following morning, i learned that it really happened that way.

I like to have a fan going. I work at night and sleep during the day so I need something to mask the sounds from outside while I sleep. The fan also helps keep me cool while I sleep.

I like to sleep with the headphones on my ears listening to my favorite music. ^_^

i guess i am like you, i dont mind the noise of a fan or a/c but i hate outside noise or tv or radio...it also has to be dark... i blame my parents for this as they made sure it was dark and quiet when i went to sleep when i was small...us on the other hand when our girls were younger, we just went about our life normally and didnt go out of our way to be quiet or anything...

I really hate any noise while i am sleeping! I feel so relaxed when i hear the complete silence but sometimes if my husband has fallen asleep before me then its trouble lol he will snore and i cant stand that; i keep on waking him up so that he stops with his snoring till i fall asleep! During summer i use a fan and the sound of the fan does not disturb me once i have got used to it!

I like both the T.V. and a fan.For me it is hard to fall asleep in complete silence.

I don't like silence period, and having pure silence while I'm sleeping is rather hard for me. I just have to have something there before I find it comforting. I get edgy and nervous if I don't have any extra sound.

for as long as i can remember, i cannot sleep even with the slightest sound which is not coming from nature. since i was in a quiet farm and stayed there until i was four years old, the sounds coming from animals and other natural things are soothing and can effect in me sound sleeep. but when i hear people talk or even whisper, i will immediately be awakened. when hte radio is on, i can never sleep at all. this thing changed considerably now. from the moment i had to cope with the tantrums of my first child, i can sleep even in the noisiest environment already. my first child is one who cries so loud deep in the night if i do not carry her in my arms while she is sleeping. after a few months of having been subjected to this condition, sleep strikes me anytime of the day. this is really unusual as i can never sleep at daytime before.
