me, normally just mumble something, put my head under the pillow and go back to sleeping...lol... Anyway, it depends on who it is, and why they disturbed me...If it's my son, then i never refuse him, so i get up quickly and do what he ask... And for the rest, i just sit up quickly and scream...WHAT? So how bout you, what do you usually do to people who disturbs you while sleeping?

I usually ignore and continue sleeping. If that person is persistent, I will scream!! I am a light sleeper and I wake up on my own every morning (with the help of alarm). I do not need anyone to wake me up. If someone comes and disturb me, I'll surely turn nasty.

I have a very hard time falling back to sleep once woken up so most know not to disturb me while I am sleeping unless it is really necessary. Usually my reaction is to jump up (as if someone yelled fire) catch my barrings and then ask them if I was having a seizure or if the house is on fire. If I get a no to both they are forced to stay awake with me until or if I actually fall back to sleep.

Why thank you. I actually did that with someone who felt the need to wake me at least twice a week. It became the warning of what will happen if I were woken LOL

Obviously I'm not a funny person to disturb because you never know..sometimes I can scream in the morning if I wake up on the wrong side and sometimes I just talks in my sleep,answering my kids or my partner on their questions and then I don't know what I have told them(!)

Normally nobody disturbs me when i sleep,because they know sleep is the one which comes automatically and it never comes for the people like me..so they never disturbs me...but still if somebody wakes me up i just get and tell them give me 10 mns... But nowadays my little takes my sleep as she loves to be awake at late night times and her smile forgets me to have sleep but the morning hrs in office my colleagues are suffering as sometimes i take a breathe in office. really days are funny nowadays but little smiles takes it off

When I'm at my parents house, nobody disturbs me when I sleep, I have my own room. They only time when my mother knocks my door, is on emergency cases. Like, my fathers blood pressure is going up, or my grandmother is sick. I don't get mad for this. Now that I'm with my husband. Just the two of us in the house. He doesn't disturb me when I sleep. There was a time when my cousin sleep in our house. She keeps on waking me up, she wants to talk and talk. Sometimes I'm already dreaming on my sleep, she will call me up in a loud voice. I was really mad at that time. But I controlled myself no to loose my temper. Because if I do I might not be able to go back sleeping. So I pretended that I did not hear her. I stayed calm, close my eyes, close my ears, close my mind. And I tried my best to sleep. After a few minutes of trying to wake me up. She went out of the room. I just wanted me to listen to her. She wants to talk about the same story she has been telling me for weeks. It was a repetition of same stories.

No one can disturb when I sleep. Usually I won't bother and continue to sleep unless there it's important for me to wake up.

SO far, nobody has disturb my sleep, except for my army camp mates.. hehe =D When i was in the army, nobody dare to disturb my sleep because i'm the IC, and so it's only me disturbing other's sleep and they cant disturb mine.. lol =D WHenever i feel bored and most of them are trying to sleep, i will purposely bring the soccer room inside the bunk and begin to kick it around, making noise, dirty their bed, so that they cant sleep.. lol But most of the time, i will stop after 15mins or so, but i will be back around 2hrs later again, because that's the time, they will sure wake up, and so i will wreak havoc again.. lol =D It's just so fun, but we are still frenz no matter how we played and disturbed each other ^_^ hehe

I'm a really light sleeper, so I wake up right away when someone sits on my bed or opens the shutters. Anyway, I'm not really surly. The first thing I'll do is figure out why I am being disturbed. If it's accidental, then I'll try to go back to sleep first then complain later on. If it was deliberate, then I'll wake up right away and do what is asked of me.

I used to scream at whoever awoke me, or if not scream be very sore at them to the point that I can even say pissed off. Especially when I worked such very long hours and no one was respectful of me so that I might be able to sleep before waking up sometimes only four hours later to go back to work. Now, I just kind of grumble sometimes and go back to sleep. It depends on what it's for.

I generally have a very deep sleep and i sleep in no time, so it is not a big problem for me. If someone disturbs me while sleeping, i usually sit up annoyed, with a big question mark on my face asking "what is the problem?" and then go back to sleep again if it is an avoidable issue else look into the problem and take a nap again. :-)

[b]i see..i bet you have the chances to sleep whenever you want...if that would be my case, it wouldn't be a problem at all if someone wakes me up, since i work during the night, i really have to sleep during the day and i expect no one to disturb unless it is important...or else, i would just scream at them and get mad.. anyway, thanks for sharing my friend!

when someone disturb me when i am sleeping, i would just give some answer which i have no idea. my mum once scold me for saying 'i am having my lunch now' when she asked me what i want for breakfast. and once my hand phone was ringing, i simply answered it and said wrong number. it is really quite funny how all of of us would respond so that we can get more sleep.

I usually don't mind if someone disturbs me when I'm sleeping because... I rarely sleep. Lol. Kidding aside, I've had insomnia for a long time and I've always been a light sleeper so I just wake up and ask what's up. If it's something important, I do it. If not, I just try to go back to sleep. My little nephew would also wake me up for no reason at all, sometimes just to hug me and I don't mind at all... It makes going back to sleep all the better.
