    I don't use alarm clocks. If I need to be up by a certain time, I make a mental note and I automatically seem to wake up right when I need to.

    Well, I'm getting tired right now, and I have a test to study for tomorrow. I'll try your 45 minute nap idea, INTJMom, and see how it goes. Hope my alarm clock works this time.

If you're in a deep sleep state and then your alarm just starts blasting you, you're much more likely to hit snooze, turn it off, or wake up feeling groggy.
    I had a similar problem to the OP whereby I switch off the alarm and have no recollection after I wake up (late). Many a time when I have (successfully) been woken up by an alarm, I do so in a cranky mood brought about by being jarred from sleep in such a manner. I think the two alarms idea is a brilliant one and I definitely see myself implementing that one soon.

    For me, when it comes to sleep I have a cycle section near my starting where 45 min to 2 hours after I fall asleep I can be woken up just fine. After three hours I can sleep through machine gun fire. At hour 5, I am revivable again, though it takes me 3 hours to then become functional. At 7 I only need 1.5 - 2 hours of system checking. After 9 hours I just switch on. After 11 hours I feel like shit.
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    FAILED.

    But I did feel wide awake after a 4 hour sleep.

    Oh and at least I heard the alarm, and I know I shut it off. Unfortunately I made the mistake of sitting back in bed for a minute. So I lack willpower.

    Maybe my "natural sleep cycle" is different or something.
