    Instead of watching TV as you fall asleep, do you now find yourself falling asleep with your iPhone in your hand--playing with apps, watching video, listening music, web browsing, etc.?

    True

    No, I tuck it into a tiny bed I made especially for it. Then I read it a story, kiss it goodnight, and slowly leave the room. :']

    I get very tired and start to fall asleep doing almost anything in bed.

    I keep mine on my night stand and regularly find myself waking up in the middle of the night and using it for 30-45mins to check web sites and such. It's difficult to put down. :D

    Not in my hand, but I have fallen asleep with it next to my pillow. Good thing I don't move around much while I sleep. :D

    I actually did the 2nd night having it. I was trying to drain the battery so that I could charge it while I slept... I ended up falling asleep, but woke up a couple hours after and it was still safe and sound on my bed. I moved it over to its nice dock so that it would be charged for me in the morning :)

    Mine is by my nightstand, and gets used at 5:30AM to check the USA Today, NY Times and Wall Street Journal.

    I definitely have many times. It always freaks me out when I wake up with it in hand hovering above the floor. But, haven't dropped it yet!

    This has actually happened to me a couple times in the past week. I just downloaded a bunch of audiobooks and have found that they're extremely effective at zonking me out.

    I sometimes even start to dream about what I'm listening to...

    I have dropped it on the bed beside me a couple of times just as I was falling asleep. Good thing I never nudged it off the bed or dropped it to the floor.

    I fell asleep last night listening to the Half Blood Prince Audiobook to refresh my memory about the upcoming movie. Woke up in the morning and found it under my bed. Luckily I used my 2G iPhone (converted to touch) for that very reason.

    Very true, the battery definitely won that night.
