    Do you sleep with the TV on or off?

    I had this discussion today, and I can't sleep with the TV on. I can't even sleep at night unless it's pitch black. Which is weird because I've fallen asleep playing video games.

    Not intentionally, but if I'm dozing off I often fall asleep with the TV/laptop on. Less so TV since I don't watch it much, but I do fall asleep while watching YouTube videos a lot.

      Never on purpose. 90% of the time, I fall asleep in the living room and the tv happens to be on.

      Whenever I sleep in the living room I'll have the TV on, and very rarely in my room. If I put the TV on in my room it's usually on a Music Choice channel with the volume set to 1 and that provides enough volume.

      Ahhhh so much wasted electricity!!

      I have never had the TV on while asleep. I prefer the my room (or wherever I'm sleeping) to be as dark as possible.

      Background noise doesnt bother me as much though, as I grew up next to some druggies who blasted reggaeton all night like all drug gang members do.

      I turn it off before I go to sleep, and feel embarrassed on those rare occasions where I doze off before turning it off.

      I can't sleep without something to focus my brain on, otherwise it's like trying to sleep with a tornado in my head. So yeah, I tend to sleep with the tv on.

        Only time that happened was when I was really tired and fell asleep when the TV still on

          I did when I was around 15-16, but only because I stayed up all night prior to that almost every night. I don't think I could now, it's bad enough to have to hear my parent's tv blasting until around midnight every night. I keep my door shut, and their room is all the way down the hall, but there's nothing to do about it short of wearing earplugs.

            I used to sleep with it on for no real reason. Mostly put basketball or some other random thing that was quiet on then I would wake up when Angel and Charmed came on real early in the morning. I dont do it anymore but I could.

            I dont have a TV in my room, but I can fall asleep with the TV/Computer on. I enjoy listening to music as I fall asleep. Something calming.

              Not TV, as I don't have one in my bedroom, but I regularly fall asleep with my tablet on, usually whilst listening to a podcast or something on YouTube.

                Oh yes. The TV never goes off. It does get muted though as needs demand.

                As long as the volume is a little low and not too loud, I can sleep with the TV on.

                I'm able to take naps while it's on. At night...nope. While I don't need total darkness and I sleep better with a bit of noise going on, the TV is just too much of both at that time.

                At least it's not an older TV - I definitely couldn't sleep with those on, the whine the TV itself made would keep me up.

                Not really, it is in the living room and I sleep in my bedroom so I wouldn't really notice it anyways. And back when I lived in a tiny apartment with everything in the same room, I don't think I did either. I can understand it though, falling asleep in a nap in front of the TV is strangely calming.

                I might sometimes dozed off while watching tv if I were very tired, but at most it would be a couple hours until I realize oh the tv is on and then I turn it off haha.

                I haven't owned cable since I was 12 years old, nor have I owned a T.V. other than my monitor for several years as well.... I get what I want to watch done on my PC or Laptop. With that said though, I do sleep with my ceiling fan on, even in the dead of winter, because the air is too dry if I don't.

                  Terrible psyducking idea! Great way to allow propaganda and media brainwash to seep into your subconscious. Anyone who is complacent with allowing that to happen are the reason the America is contentedly embracing fascism under the noses of millions of mindless sheep.

                    Subliminal messaging doesn't only exist through news and political based programs. It's everywhere. Wake up!
