I wonder how many of you can sleep in such condition but definitely is not me. I cannot sleep if the television or radio is on. I cannot sleep with noise in my bedroom. But I see some of my friends can just sleep even the surrounding is noisy. Maybe I am a bit more particular when it comes to sleeping habit. Lol. How about you? What is your sleeping habit? Can you manage to sleep at a noisy place? Please tell me,thanks.

If I am exhausted I can sleep through anything. However, on a normal every day night, no I do not want any noise, except the noise of my fan.

It is a matter of personal customs. I have got the habit to turn on the TV after going into my blankets, and does not matter how tired am I, I have to turn on the TV until got sleept.

always turn on the television, i can't sleep without hearing something sound, if not from TV i turn on the win-amp from my computer with headphone so i don't disturb my wife, because she don't like with noisy sound and the light must turn off.

I always sleep with the tv, even if I don't want it. If I'dont have my tv on when I'm going to bed I can't sleep until I'm too tired. It's a bad habit !!!

I work at night and sleep during the day. I have grown quite accustomed to sleeping with a lot of noise. Actually, I am to the point that I can not fall asleep without noise. I have to have the kids playing or the tv on. My husband and kids are usually up and about as I am sleeping. And you know, when the kids are quiet they are up to something. Hearing them as I am drifting off to sleep is comforting.

I cant stand to have noise besides some calming music. And I only like it at times when my family is being to loud for me to sleep. But my husband has to have the tv on everytime. What really annoys me is that tv dreamland that will sneak into your subconscience and you will be in the tv.

Hi friends, That is so true. My husband has terrible nightmares. I have often told him it is the TV, which he insists on have on, you hear something on there, and it sneaks into your dreams. Depending on what is going on on the tv show, God knows what you could end up dreaming about. Cheers, Cheryl

Yes, I can...but if only I'm really really sleepy. If I'm just slightly sleepy, the noise can be a problem to falling asleep but once I'm asleep, the noise wouldn't wake me...unless it was very loud and sudden. I've been known to fall asleep in front of the television many a time....but it's harder to fall asleep at a noisy party.

I do lay in bed and watch my TV every night before I go to sleep. It helps me to watch it because it gets my stresses off of my mind and then makes me sleepy. But as soon as I start to fall asleep I will turn it off because if I don't it will wake me up and then I will have trouble falling back to sleep. I used to listen to my radio all night but since I started watching TV I don't even turn my radio on anymore. But I did try listening to it a couple weeks ago, while in bed, and I couldn't fall asleep with it on. I don't know how I ever slept all night with it on, before. Alrighty then, talk to you later my friend, Have a good mylotting day, Chris

It is so easy for me to fall asleep in front of the tv! I can be watching a movie, and in the last 10 minutes, can fall asleep and miss the ending! Quite aggravating! LOL! I also sleep with the radio on at night. I am so used to it now. It is too quiet without it.

hello yenwie84, Yes, I can sleep with the television or radio is on. That is if the program, movie that I am watching is boring and not my type. Also if I slept late last night. Even if the neighborhood is nosiy, it doesn't matter to me for as long as I am so sleepy. I can sleep in no time.

On a normal night I usually just sleep with noise from my fan. My tv is on but it is on mute, I just use the light of the tv. When I'm exhausted, I can sleep through anything. Once I slept through a rock concert at my school because I was so tired. I'm learning to sleep with more noise though because I sleep over my friends houses alot.

When I was still single I can't sleep without music on. But right now that I just got married my husband can't sleep with noise in the background so I'm trying to get used to sleeping in silence lol

Nah.. I can't. I can't sleep with noise. Whenever I go traveling, I'll be the last one to sleep. Some of my friends love to sleep with lights and TV on. I have to wait for them to sleep, turn off the lights and TV, before I can sleep too.

If i am pretty much exhausted,yes i can sleep in a noisy place.I also use to fall asleep in the couch while watching tv.So that would mean that i can sleep while tv is on.

I normally need quiet and darkness to be able to sleep. But lately, more often than not, I need the tv on to be able to sleep. I haven't slept in my bed in days. When I try to go to bed, I end up tossing and turning for hours.

haha...I have the same habbit with you. I cannot sleep well if there's even a little bit of noise. Many people can have a deep sleep in the noisy environment. But the picky person like me cannot bear it. Isn't a problem of noise pollution? I think so.Whether it is television radio or construction area,noise canreally cause unforeseen destructions to our health. I 'd like to do my best to fight against the noise pollution
