Do people really find it that hard to sleep without complete silence? I refuse to believe that someone cannot sleep when there is some sort of noise. In Ocean City my sister whined about how she didn't want us watching TV in their room because she was trying to sleep. She said she can only sleep with her CD player on, not with anything else. Now i already know this is a bullshit reason, but my dad just told me to turn my music down because he was trying to sleep upstairs. From there all you can hear is a low humming. Is it really THAT HARD for someone to sleep if something is happening?

I cant sleep in complete silence, I have to have a TV going or my CD Player. But my dad is like that, he has to have complete silence to sleep, which sucks cause my room is like right next to theirs.

I just wonder why snoring is the perfect noise with which to keep people awake. I'm sure there are some fiendish evolutionary backfires involved there.

Ninja - Yes it is!!!!!! I have a horrible time sleeping if there is noise. Light sleepers wake up to the slightest noise and can't fall asleep with noise going on.
Personally, I sleep with earplugs in if my S/O wants to watch TV.

I can sleep either way. Last night I slept in total darkness, and the night before I fell asleep with the TV on.

I can put up with soft noises, or very repetitive/constant (like running water or a tapping sound) noises of moderate sound level. If people are talking I can't sleep, so I've never been able to sleep when I can hear a TV, radio or music.

I have trouble sleeping when there's a lot of light, too, but I think that has more to do with my internal clock telling me that it's not time for sleeping.

I sleep with my tv on, but with very, very little sound. The little sound I do hear helps me drift into sleep.

I always have Enigma or Machines of Loving Grace or Morphine in the CD player in the bedroom for sleeping.

I can sleep through anything, I'm a pretty deep sleeper. In a dark quiet room on a stool, broad daylight in the middle of traffic, wherever.

Reason why some people can't go to sleep in complete silence is because of Tinnitus, a hearing syndrome where they get this "ringing" in the ears. I got Tinnitus, and yeah, it's hard to sleep with no noise.

I need absolute darkness in order to sleep. Noise dosen't bother me much, but I can't sleep at all when there is light present. Even the little light on the cable box annoys me.

The only way to get a good night's rest is to sleep in my pitch-black coffin.

I don't understand, though. I'm a very, very light sleeper (I wake up right before someone gets to the front door of my house nearly every time), and i have to have sound when i sleep. Any sound, just SOME kind, and preferrably, multiple sources for said sounds. Like i usually have music, and the fan, and my computer humming lightly. With the computer off my room seems kind of eerie now.

I think you no-noisers are all just freaks.

The only way I'll fall asleep is with a fan on - or something with that gives that humming noise. It's funny, my wife is the same way. We can't sleep without that noise.

when I'm asleep, I can sleep through antyhing, except through my brother's snoring which is the exact frequency to which I wake up.

Any other noises, a nuclear bomb could go off next to my house, and the only thing in a 50 mile radius standing would be my bed and me, sleeping.

I do as sadie. I sleep every other day, and only for 3 to 5 hours. That way, it doesn't matter if I'm in the middle of a freakin CS lanparty.

Hello darkness, my old friend,
I've come to talk with you again,
Because a vision softly creeping,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence.
