The best way I wake up is the "Charlie Sheen Way" - 1 woman on either side of me. The alarm clock "iSheen" is playing the theme to "two and half men". Then a 3rd woman comes into the bedroom serving breakfast for all!

My favorite way to wake up?

Late, on a Saturday morning.

Think about good time you and your friends had until 2am (usually drunk like hell). Normally, you work tomorrow. In 6:30am your iPhone is starting to produce this particular sound "ah-OOG-ah........ah-OOG-ah.........ah-OOG-ah"! You open your glued eyes, stop the alarm. stretch yourself and hit your head to open window. This is my favorite way of waking up. Tired but very very happy.

Favorite way to wake up is naturally, feeling well rested but without using anything else. However, that rarely happens so I could use a new alarm clock!

Waking up in the middle of the night the day before an Apple announcement conference to check my Maclife app for the most recent rumors/news.

I appreciate everything this site does and spend plenty of time refreshing to get the latest info.

Thanks,
Ichabod

the best wake up is next to the one you love, cuddled in their arms, enjoying the warmth of their body, knowing you are safe in their embrace, relishing the fact that, for the moment, there are no worries or troubles in your life.

Realizing it's the weekend and going back to sleep!

Soothing sounds from the rainforest are ideal; I usually settle for a few rounds of snooze-induced bells.

I'm addicted to the snooze button on my iPhone. I'm sure I'm not getting quality sleep the last 2 hours between 5-7am. I actually have alarms set for every 15 minutes and I tap the snooze button every time it comes up.

There's the endless snoozing, the extra battery-operated alarm clock, 2 egg timers and thank God I have thick walls.

I'm not asking you to end my days of snoozing.. just improve the sound quality. :)

Best way to wake up is with your significant other beside you on one side and other the other, your other significant other (iDevice)...Of coarse with the smell of coffee, bacon and eggs!!!

"People who get up early in the morning cause war, death and famine." Maybe it wouldn't be as bad if they had this alarm...

I just love to wake up well rested to some great music... makes me smile and helps me start the day with a great attitude.

Happy opposite day Squidward! I love waking up to this squawking Blackberry! I absolutely do not need a TimeCommand Alarm Dock because I do not need to be on time for work everyday. No thank you Mac|Life.

This is just what I was waiting for! Hope I win.

I prefer not to wake at 3 am with my cat patting me on the cheek trying to get fed at that unacceptable hour. There are cat distraction apps to help with that. I prefer to wake at 5 or 6 am to a rotating schedule of music.

I'll be giving this to my son who started school for the first time this year. He needs an alarm clock, and he wants to use his iPod Touch as his alarm.

The combination of media would make waking up at 6:00 a little easier...

I prefer to wake up when some crazy nutter turns on the lights in the barracks and yells "get the heck up, lights on!"

I wake with my Bose radio to local talk radio and I turn it off with my remote control.

I love waking up when my wife gives me a kiss and the first thing i see is her beautiful face... and then i crack open my Macbook Pro!

I usually wake up to the marimba sound from my iPhone but lately waking up to the bloody dog around the corner. I could really use a nice alarm clock.

If I said anything but beside my loving wife, I'd be in trouble. However, that's also the truth.

Enter me please. I need a new alarm clock.

I usually wake up to my old-school iHome, where the volume slowly increases instead of immediate blaring...always to music. Lately something from my Muse collection. (on shuffle) When I use my iPhone (like when away from home) I use Best Alarm and always use the Beatles "Good morning", that rooster crowing and the chanting of "good morning, good morning" gets me up with a smile on my face.

I like to wake up when nobody wakes me up.. :P

I use Aurora. But I'd rather use my phone/pad. Please pick me.

my favorite way to wake up? Well rested after a good night's sleep, of course.

I like waking up next to a girl whose teeth look soft. (Was I the only one that caught that in Nic's song?)

My iPhone is my current alarm click, with no docking whatsoever or other options. Being able to not only have an alarm clock dock, but also using my iPad with a weather alarm clock app is my big wish right now!

nothing beats waking up to coffee and bacon.

I like to wake up to the sun rising outside my window :)

"I like to wake up to the smell of fresh bacon - so sue me. Every night I lay out bacon on my George Foreman grill by my bed..." - Michael Scott (The Office)

I really do like to wake up to the smell of fresh bacon, but more than that I love to wake up to my Mat Kearney alarm loop on my iPhone and scroll thru my MacLife app to make sure I am sufficiently briefed to face the day and my fellow geek friends with the latest Mac news. (I'm not kidding... I really do this)

Maybe this will be harder to shove it under my pillow like I've been known to do with my iPod

I have my iphone play a custom ringtone of the beginning of The Who's "Baba O'Reilly." It's loud enough to get me awake but not annoying.

avatar

Hmmm...my wife and I are in our 60s, but our favorite way to wake up is, well, censored, but you can imagine. Hint: it doesn't involve our Macs or iPods. But this alarm clock would come a close second.

HMChoate

Hopefully I will win. I use my iPhone 4. I use the standard alarm in the clock app and I use an app called Code Clock as a back up. Code Clock requires you enter a random 8 digit code to shut the alarm off so you really have to focus in order to see and enter the numbers. It works good on those lazy days

ldeffinbaugh

That would be nice, as long as it can hold the ipad

I like to wake up to the fresh smell of bacon eggs of coffee already made by my hubby (ˆ◡ˆ) ★ ♫♪★ Life is Good ! ★ ♫♪★

I like to wake up best with a snooze alarm close by! My iPad provides one at the moment with a crescendoing alarm tone. :-)

Now I use my iPod Touch 4 to wake up and go to sleep. I’m eagerly awaiting getting the new iPhone 5 to do this just right

I like to wake up early and crank up some Ashtray Art!

In Someone else's bed with my iPhone by my side.

who likes to wake up? sleep is the best.

This might seem normal-ish, but I just set my alarm on my clock.

Waking up on any weekend knowing I don't have to go to work!
