I am alone in my apartment for 4 years and for 4 years, too, I slept with the lights ON. I'm scared also especially that my workplace is very far from my parents house.

It is a scientific fact that one should always sleep with the lights off, It ensures a sounder sleep with less interuptions. Most people that sleep with the lights on will wake several times during the night for no apparent reason. A lighted room will cause eye stimulation and movement giving you less real sleep.

Oh, I definitely prefer to have the lights turned off. I cannot sleep with the lights turned on. It is just too bright! I need the lights off and the covers around me! :)

I preffered to turned my lights off. To save electricity more and I'm more comfortable sleeping when the light is off.

I prefer them off. When I was little, I used to sleep with them on since I was naive and believe all these strange stories and scared myself with my wide imagination. But I would prefer having them off now. Can't sleep at all with the littliest light seething through the room for some reason. It has to be complete darkness. It's feel more calm, quiet, and relaxing when it's dark.

I prefer to sleep while the light is turned on, because next day I wake with great headake and my eyes pain like crazy! But sometimes I feel... nervous? I don't see ghosts around my room, but I just don't feel good when I'm turning the light off and I have to sleep with light. It's crazy

OFF! most definitely.. Only time I ever sleep with the lights on is if I dozed off and even then I'd get up and go turn them off.

In a few years I sleep with my younger sister with a dim light in our room. I was a bit scared in the dark back then, feeling that there's something scary in our room. But just a few months ago we decided to sleep lights off, and we're now used to it.

When I sleep, I like to have lights turned off... I can't seem to fall asleep when the lights are on, not as well anyway... When I'm really tired, it doesn't really matter but if I had a choice, I'd rather have it off...

When I was a child I slept sometimes with lights turned on. Now I sleep with lights turned off coz when it turned on it bothers me a lot.

I prefer sleeping with lights on because I sleep with my kids. And personally even when I was much young I sleep with lights on. I have this feeling of drowning whenever I open my eyes and see nothing but blackness.
