Do you sleep in darkness or with a light?

    I never really sleep in total darkness and I have kept a light on most of the time and if the light goes off I wake up. But I am curious about this after reading the thread about the girl being shot after she broke in a home.

    I have a laser sighted 229 that I sleep with but the room is either lit by one light or the tv or next to a room with a light. Of course the dogs walk through the home regardless.

    So how about you folks? Lights in room or total darkness?

    I sleep best in total darkness, absolute silence and very cold.

    I prefer dark, quiet, and cold.

    I can sleep in the middle of a sunny 110* day with gunfire and heavy equipment nearby with no problems though :supergrin:

    Lol, that's funny.

    I need total darkness. The blacker, the better. I am a light sleeper, so any sound or light leaking into the room tend to keep me up.

    There's a street light not far from the bedroom window which even with the bliinds keeps the room lit enough to see. There's another street light on the other side of the house where it has the same effect in the living room and kitchen. Plenty of light to see someone moving around.

    I do have a light mounted on my pistol, and another on my shotgun. It's just me and my girlfriend living here, so if I wake up and she's beside me in bed, and someone is in the house making noise, they're going to have a gun pointed at them no matter what.

    I sleep with the blinds closed, but I have the TV on volume 2 and set the timer to 60 minutes. Can't sleep without the TV on.

    Electroluminescent panels... not much light, but navigation markers for moving around in the dark.

    Dark but some kind of light somewhere for orientation. The little red light on the TV is fine. Also the clock. Can't see by either but they let you know where you are.

    Pitch black, silent and cool.

    Blackout curtains on the windows
    I use my cell phone as an alarm clock so I dont have a glow.
    I wish I could completely soundproof my bedroom, but I aint rich enough.

    My wife makes me insane because she wants the TV on all night while I don't even like the LED light thats on when the damn thing is off.

    All I need is a relatively flat place. Light is usually on low (50 Watt). I like to be able to see when I wake up.

    That is how my house is. The street light makes light in the room so I can see. I hate not being able to see what is going on and who is in my bed. :whistling:
