At my age, just waking up is quite the surprise!

I just set my iPhone to alarm clock with Tesla coil. It's a somewhat creepy sound.

100% Colombian coffee, and my iPhone to catch up with email and news

Waking up then falling back to sleep.

Waking up to breakfast in bed would be best! You're lying down and eating BACON! while simultaneously listening to my favorite artists on my new TimeCommand App-Enhanced Audio Alarm Dock for iPod"

It would be the sound of waves pounding on the beach. A extra bonus is that the sound sparks me to start dreaming of surf. Aloha Nui, y Mas Olas !!!

I wake up to my iPhone alarm and my wife rolling over to tell me to go make the coffee and she proceeds to kick me out of bed to make said coffee and bring it to her in bed.

My favorite way to wake up I guess is the way I wake up. Acceptance. My 15 year old female cat begins howling at daybreak and won't stop no matter what until I get up and feed her and then wait and let her out! The older she gets, the worse it gets.

My favorite way to wake up is slowly, stretching, with enough time to comfortably dress and work out the aches and pains.

The way I wake up now is by turning the beep alarm on for much earlier than I need to wake up so I can wiggle my joints and try to move around enough so I don't yell when my knee would rather stay in bed.

My favorite way to wake up is whenever I feel like it.

Well, it used to be my old trusty alarm clock until it got dropped during a bedroom renovation. It still works, but instead of music or alarm, I have to wake up to static from the radio (no other settings will work) :( I have since began using the Relax Melodies app on my iPhone, but it's not really "annoying" enough!

I prefer soothing sounds in the beginning. If that doesn't work, then loud and obnoxious.

I like to wake up to soft music...

naked... I like to wake up naked... and all that that implies. ;)

I like to wake up to the sun peeking thrpugh the curtains and the taste of cinnamon toast and coffee

avatar

I like to wake up with the sun in my face and a cool, damp breeze blowing by.

If I have to get up it is best on the weekend when the smell of bacon drifts upstairs.
Or you lay in bed and listen to WXPN and listen to Sleepy Hollow or the Beatles hour.

My favorite way to awake from slumber is waking to the gentle nudging of my little rat terrier Frank. He wakes me up most mornings with a little bit of urgency so that I can stumble down the stairs half asleep and let him out to relieve himself. My partner Chuck relies on his alarm to wake him up later in the morning, since he likes to sleep as late as possible. This would be a wonderful addition to help "nudge" him out of bed in the morning! Rest well, everyone!

Well-rested, to no alarm, on a beautiful fall Saturday morning, next to my beautiful wife, hearing my son watching some cartoons or singing like a madman up in his room. And if it has to be to an alarm, then to the tune Acclimate by General Fuzz (look it up).

I luv feeling the warmth of the sun peeking into the room. The rays startle me into consciousness. My wife's loving touch gently nudges me to slide off the bed onto my knees. A new day is beginning. Wow, I'm alive for another day.

My boyfriend works nights, and I work as a math TA/grad student so my days start early. We don't have a lot of opportunities to talk, but nothing beats waking up to a call from him calling me his angel, telling me he loves me and wishing me a good day.

I'm a firefighter and I love my job. My favorite way to wake up is when my iPhone chimes in with a text alert and it is time for me to get up and go to work, maybe making a difference in somebody's life!

I am not a morning person, so anything that gives me a chance of getting up on time with any amount of consistency, while being greeted with my favorite tunes is a pretty darn good piece of technology, as far as I'm concerned!

In retirement, having an alarm clock is not a necessity. However, having a new accessory for my Apple gadgets is about as much fun as spilling out the prize from my morning box of cereal! :)

Waking up in the morning can be such a drag

I'm still sleeping.

I like to wake up by myself, but when I know I am gonna oversleep, I set my ipod or ipad alarms to gently alert me to the light of day.

avatar

Timothythedude

I like to wake up with an alarm on my phone, my ipod, and my laptop going off all at once :P

avatar

I like to wake up to the scream in Eels "Fresh Blood" cause it gets the blood pumping and the feet moving...

avatar

Kro26

I put my alarm on the other side of the room and turn u the volume!

I wake up each morning with the blaring sound of the antiquated am/ fm alarm clock my husband has set to an AM news station. Every 22 minutes I get 80% news 20% static and 100% annoying! I could see myself gently awakened by the soft sounds emitted by that fancy new i-alarm clock on MY nightstand!

avatar

Mr. D

Waking up before the alarm.

Freshly brewing coffee and a great song is a perfect way to wake up in the morning!

avatar

scottwuerch

To my favorite song and the smell of fresh coffee. No sweeter morning I could imagine.

avatar

As gently as possible

My favourite way to wake up is with the sun shining through the window and realising its the weekend. For all those other days, a dock for the iPad would both help me to face the day and stop a few hundred pounds' worth of Apple kit being a bed for my cat!

I usually wake up after hitting the snooze on my iPhone several times. Typically it's easier when either of my kids comes in and says 'it's time to eat!'. Having something to intensify the volume will make me jump out of bed instead of hitting the snooze over and over again.

avatar

I usually wake up to a really old Sony dock at full blast in my ear, tuned to the local top 40 radio station. But I really like waking up on a lazy saturday morning and going outside with a cup of coffee in hand, listening to some Tom Lehrer, or Lil' Wayne.

I've been wanting a new alarm clock, and this is exactly what I'm looking for!

I like the "Cricket" sound to wake up; I use it for most of my alarms.

avatar

ElGuapo669

I usually wake up with my iPhone's alarm, but it would be nice to wake with the TimeCommand ;)

avatar

Critteranne

I go to sleep with my iPad or Apple Tv, and wake up to local news. It would be nice to wake up with the iPad, too.

avatar

altairsjay

Is with my iPhone alarm set to a favorite ringtone.

avatar

Gently, after a full night's sleep

avatar

revslick

I prefer waking up refreshed, relaxed and naturally, but usually when that happens it is followed with Oh, crap! the alarm didn't go off as I hustle to work.

avatar

Merovingianman01

My favorite way to wake up is cackling maniacally as the Apple übermensch whilst my sentient iBot drones crush mine enemies and amplify the wanton Lamentations of their women.

Waking up to music can make you feel rejuvenated. Alas the tiny speakers on my idevice do provide much in the form of clear music. I am no morning person and the regular alarm clocks just make me crawl back into bed.

avatar

If I could wake up any cool or funny way, it would have to be like in the office; Wake up early enough to set the bacon the George Forman grill and have it cook delay until I wake up and smell the nice aroma of bacon. But accidentally stepping on the grill and burning my foot would allow me to give an excuse not to go to work :)

My favorite way to wake up is next to my wife! the alarm clock would look cool too!
