I do it all the time... I don't use the sleep timer though. I let one album play, by the time the last song is over I'm already sleeping
It's a habit of mine, I couldn't imagine falling asleep without music

i sleep with my ipod photo under my blanket. Lately I've been listening to Skye Sweetnam to put me to sleep. She's yet another good canadian pop/punk/rock chick like Avril and Fefe.

Anyways i use the earbuds. I pop them out of my ears just before i fall asleep. Those around-the-neck headphones hurt and the neckband makes sleep cumbersome.

Does anyone here use those sonyy noise cancelling earbuds for sleep, do they work well?

Happy Early Birthday! And the "hot girlfriend" comment was hillarious.

As for me "sleeping" with my iPod, I did that twice when I got it, but not on purpose. I had accidently fallen asleep with the earbuds on and the music playing.

I have "Brainwave" and Sleep CDs that I bought ripped to my iPod. I just select that as the Playlist and I pass out in no time normally. I've just recently started using the "sleep timer" but since my iPod is docked with full power going to it, it charges while playing the sleep music and once the playlist is up, it stops itself anyway... so I'm good to go.

Can you provide a link or info where to find that program? Thanks.

(15 ON MARCH 27!) so i guess my mini hasnt tried to suffocate me yet.
Congrats on the birthday (a little early). Maybe I'm just fanatic, but I'd rather wake up with an iPod, than a hot girl. I know, get my head checked.

As for being strangled to death by your iPod, that's definitely very hardcore. Would probably be somewhat of a negative-advertising campaign against them, however.

I haven't done it in a while, but I used to lie on the bed with the earphones on...that didn't work very well coz the earphones kept slipping off. When I get my new headphones, I'll resume that habit though.

Gotta love the iPod! I was so terrified last time, coz I was afraid that I'd lie over the 'Pod!

Thumbs up

I sleep with my ipod every night. I plug it in to power either set the sleep timer for an hour and shuffle on a playlist, or let it play through an album or artist. Usually I hook it up to speakers, but occasionally (ex. when on vacation and sharing the room with others) I sleep with the earphones in with no problems.

i fall asleep to my iPod every night. I sleep in a bunk bed. I have a fan above me that has a hook on it that I hang my headphones on so I have "speakers" and don't have to sleep with headphones on, and I have my iPod on a ghetto rig stand (iPod resting on 2 nails in the bedpost). I've got pics that I'll post soon...

I also have a playlist called "bedtime". Damien Rice, Iron & Wine, etc. The nice thing about calling it "bedtime" is that its the first playlist - so I can find it in the dark by repeatedly hitting the menu button a few times, then hitting the select button a few times.

I have one of those buckwheat travel ring pillows, which are usually used for putting around your neck to sleep while sitting up. I use that so I can lie on my side and still use the earbuds. Very nice!

When I'm about to drop off, I put them on my nightstand. No strangling involved.

I rigged up some Soundsticks (originals) to an Altec Lansing sub that Staples had on sale before Christmas.
I play Reiki music...and some subliminal learning items as well..
Andreas Mock's Merlin's Magic is great if you want an hour long catnap and to wake up refreshed.
