Waking up

In my never-ending quest to wake-up on time, I stumbled across this review of an alarm clock that monitors your sleep cycles and wakes you up at the optimal point. Seems ingenious, yet logical. I guess it works well enough that the reviewers gave it an 8/10 citing some very minor (IMHO) drawbacks. $250 is kinda spendy, though.

The Snooze Button

I think in the last two weeks I've been hitting the snooze button (5 minute separations) an average of 9 times every morning.

Now, the pressing issue – should I just get up when the alarm goes off initiallly at it's current time, or do I set the alarm clock back 45 minutes and then wake up at the first time?
