Yes, before they put the screen saver back up, on cable down here we have like 20 music channels or more. I use to sleep with "Soundscapes". But, it would be like leaving your computer screen on now on with your photo scroller on. I miss it I really do.
Tv works for us as kind of a night time companion. So it don't fee; sp darl and lonely. Others are afraaid of bruglers like me and if they hear sound, they may stay away. Now I have ADT so I feel alot safer then I have. But, the one minute response time between the time the alarm goes off tell the time they call me to find out if I am alright and then call whoever. My God! I could be dead.
i cant go to sleep without the tv on...my rents get upset that i leave it on all night so I try to turn it off as i'm drifting off but I prefer to leave it on...though i'm told you get much better sleep when there are no distractions such as light and sound
I usually have an easier time sleeping with it on, if it's not then I tend to sleep light and any little noise (cars driving by, house settling, etc) wakes me up. With the TV on it seems to desensitize me to noise.
I sleep with the tv on too. I put it to the video output thingy where the screen just stays blue, and there's no sound. It's just enough light to feel comfortable with and there's no abrupt sound to wake me up. I also put it on sleep so I won't waste electricty or run up the energy bill. I also have to sleep with a fan on, for some noise. It blocks out the creaks and groans of the house, and the outside noise as well as my boyfriend getting up early in the morning.
Do what works for you. Although I have heard many studies that sleeping with the tv on can disrupt your sleeping habits. Like all of the flashing as the pictures change, and the noise. That's why I sleep with it the way I do.
ya i sleep with the television on, i am so paranoid so any noise freaks me out and make me nervous and worried that something gonna come it and kill me and i can't get to sleep. The TV instantly soothes me. I always were a mask so i block out the light, for me it's the sound that I need, to block out any other sounds (whether their real or just in my head). If I'm with somebody else when I'm sleeping I'm fine, but I can't sleep without it when I'm alone!
oh my goodness! before i could not sleep with any lights on! just a few days ago i got super stressed out because i have a fear of giant water bugs or big ass roaches with wings! woke up one night and saw the damn thing right next to me!!
I've been soo stressed out even started having anxiety attacks because of it! i was watching wrestling and forgot to turn the computer off and all of a sudden i got the best sleep of my life just leaving something on like a movie or tv show playing on my computer!
Still hate the big ass roaches with wings though... now i sleep with roach spray next to me:(
