I too prefer to sleep in the dark. Best if it is total darkness. I hate to sleep with the light on. Very difficult to go to sleep with it. I get better quality rest when the lights are off or if the place is dark.

I guess in our homes, it is impossible to be totally dark. The ambient light from the moon, or the street lights will usually light up the room a little. Those are usually sufficient to let one make their way to the kitchen or the toilet before hitting the switch.

I will not let the light on when I was asleep. One is that I can not bear any light when I am sleeping. The light will make me hard to fall asleep, and easy to wake up, and have an effect on my natural clock. So if it is possible, I will try to keep all the light including the sunshine away when i am in bed. The other is that light cost enenrgy, so keep it on when I am sleeping is a way to waste energy, and it may cause other safety problems like fire and so on.

Without the sun light, I can sleep a whole day. So now, I have some sunshine into my room, so that i can get up in the morning.

I can sleep with the lights on and there was a time that I do sleep with the lights on. Nowadays, I turn it off. I just thought that Id be wasting electricity if I keep the light on and Ive never used a night light. Actually prefer the room to be a dim most of the time though so the light is always off even when Im in there and Im not sleeping. Just a quirk.^_^

Good that you already have it in your habits to turn off the light.^_^ You save and conserve energy, plus with the prices of everything going higher everyday, a few cents/dollars can be a lot of help.

yes.. without turning lights off, i couldnt sleep at all. i dont even wish to turn on night lamps. my room should be completely dark & only then i can sleep. i will lost temper soon if any member of my family turn on the lights in my room or even open the door of my room. my room lights should be completely off. only then my dreams lights will be on! we are working much hard & night is the only time for us to relax totally. so don't forget to enjoy those moments!

Hi maxilimian! Yes I do turn the light out when I go to sleep! I need to have complete darkness in my room. I also like for the room to be completely quiet. I can only sleep if it is dark and quiet. I can't sleep if there is any light on anywhere in the apartment or if there is any noise anywhere. I even where earplugs to block out any noises. I can still hear the clock ticking in the room but if I am tired enought I will block out the sound and will fall asleep. I can also hear my boyfriend snoring. Sometimes that noise will keep me up and I have to poke him to try to quiet him a bit so that I can get to sleep.

Lights off. I can't sleep with the lights on at all unless i'm very sleepy. I hate it when i'm in bed and someone's still doing stuff in the room with the light on. After some time I'll turn off the light to let the person know if he still wants to keep doing stuff go to another room!

It is very stressful in our eyes to have lights while we sleep. Turning off the light will also help us to sleep easily and peacefully.

I know many people are like you onely. They don't fall asleep if the light is on, but for me it doesn't matter. I don't care whether light is on or not, I fall asleep as soon as I close my eyes.

It doesn't bother me if i sleep with other people i know, but i just can't sleep well when the light is on

Hi maxilimian! I can't sleep with lights on either or with any little noise that I can hear! I normally switch the light off as soon I go to bed. I don't know why also, but my sister can't sleep if the lights is off, were opposite and we can't share the bed room, lol.

It's hard for us to sleep, especially when we are in the same room with people who can't sleep with the light turn off
• Philippines

likewise.I usually turn it off the moment I go to sleep.It is because the light can penetrate your closed vision and will then alarm you,thus causing you not to sleep calmly.

i don't know about it ... but why it's not happening with people who can sleep while the light is on?

i also turn off the light when i sleep. i find it hard to sleep when there is light. i really don't know. maybe i was just used to that. sometimes when it is not too dark, i cover my eyes with my pillow so i can go to sleep easily. i haven't tried using eye covers yet. i think it is not that comfortable.
