Lately I haven't been able to wake up in the morning. I go to bed around midnight & I set my alarm for 7 or 8 am. I dont hear my alarms go off (I have one alarm clock and three alarms on my cell that go off) Even my sister tries waking me up...I dont ever remember it! I'm sick of oversleeping! What could it be?

Maybe it's because you're sleeping when the alarms goes off.

Stop smoking weed and drinking late that could be why...

try going to sleep earlier!
you'll have to do it for at least a few days for it to work though

Try to drink a lot of water before going to bed. if that doesn't work, you may try to get more sleep; some people need more than others. If all else fails, visit with your doctor.

I had the same problem. I would have 3 alarms, would turn them all off, and go back to sleep. Sometimes without even remembering it. once my alarm clock was found on the floor, turned off, and I dont remember doing that. I got a louder alarm clock, and try to go to bed early. That worked for me. The more tired I was in the morning the less conscious I was when it came time to wake up.

You need to go to bed earlier.

Try going to bed earlier or taking a nap during the day.

You are just a heavy sleeper. You need to try to get to bed early. That might help. And if it doesn't then just try diffrent methods of waking up till something works!

Try to sleep a little earlier like at 10/11 pm. I usually oversleep even though I set my alarm so I always slept a little early just to wake up in time.

go to bed earlier and stop taking sleeping pills;)

go to sleep earlier and set ur phone on vibrate and put it in ur pocket. :)

First of all, try to go to bed earlier.

Now, about your alarms: do you know if your alarms ring and you simply don't hear them OR if you turn them off "unconsciously" and later you don't remember doing that?

Well, if it's the second case, I advise you to put your alarm clock ou cell phone a few meters from your bed, so in the morning you have to wake up to shut them off.

many people have this problem. What I sometimes do is drink a lot of water before I go to bed, that way my body wakes me up :-) (or at least it will listen to the alarms)

If you're curious as to what causes this, it's that when your eyes hear things, they send the signal not directly to your brain, but first pas through something that many put in simple terms as "reflexes." I forget what it's called scientifically, but what it does is decide whether to react before telling your brain, or in special cases, not tell your brain at all.

I have seven brothers and sisters, thus my brain is so sick of hearing my name called and me telling it to try and ignore it that certain dialects from certain people can't be "heard", even in broad consciousness, unless I focus.

My friends get very annoyed when they say my name and i "can't hear them" :-)

GO TO BED EARLIER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I try to put the alarm farther .. you probably woke up and simply turn it, and didn't realize it.. by putting if farther, makes you have to get up and search for it.

if still doesn't work, you can try these kind of product for ur alarm clock

Because your going to bed at midnight and waking up only 7 hours later, you are still in your deep sleep cycle and also your just too tired to wake up. It happens to me sometimes. Try going to bed earlier and making your alarms louder. Also make your sister push you out of bed instead of wake you up. Also in the morning get a shower thats not too cold but not too warm. It will wake you up.

Try an alarm with lights and smells. This might wake you up. I have the same trouble so I set my alarm on the radio and have the volume up all the way so I think there is someone yelling at me and that works.

BK boy
When setting ur alarm. What i do is i hook my ipod up to the radio and turn it up really loud before i go to bed. Then i wake up within 15sec of when it started going off because its so loud.

A lot of sleep problems have to do with your health. You need to exercise, eat healthy, and keep a regular sleeping schedule of about 8 hours. People who don't get at least 30 minutes of good exercise a day tend to have more trouble falling into a deep and relaxing sleep, leaving you grasping for more time than you should need. You're body is not functioning optimally when you don't eat well. And your biological clock gets messed up when you don't keep regular hours or get 8 hours of sleep.
Also, as to your alarms, contrary to tradition, your alarm must be across the room, NOT right next to your bed. Set it on really loud and annoying. (If you have used one type of alarm for a long time, consider trying a different sound setting which will be more likely to grab your attention.) In this way, you will hear your alarm, have to get out of bed and turn it off. When you get out of bed STAY OUT OF BED. Go straight to the bathroom and wash your face with cold water. Go to the kitchen and make yourself some coffee or some hot tea. Make yourself something small for breakfast. Eating food wakes your body up and gets your systems running (where, as you know from thanksgiving, eating too much food sends all your energy to digesting which leaves you more tired.) So eat something small and nutritious will keep you going if you at first feel so tired still.
A little tip I can offer, is to have something particular that you are looking forward to that will make you want to jump out of bed and get to it. For me, on e of my things is looking forward to picking out today's outfit and deciding what face to put on with makeup. To me this gets me out of bed and excited. Find what works for you.

Are you taking any sleep aids (Tylenol PM or Ambien or something) ? If so, maybe you should do without for a while. If not, maybe you are not sleeping soundly and your body is still fatigued at 7 or 8am. Are you under new stress? I had this problem in college during exam time. I actually missed an exam from oversleeping. Also, look at your diet. If you are consuming a lot of caffeine or sugars during the day, you may be crashing once you go to sleep. I don't know. Good luck and I hope this gets better for you.

Its really hard for me to wake up too. You seem to be getting enough sleep, but you could try to fall asleep around 10 and see if that helps. If that doesn't work, then you should probably see a doctor.

i hate bots
do you have alarms that go off all day long at work? i used to work fast food, and my manager said that if he lets the alarms at work go without turning them off that he starts to sleep right through his alarm clock ( he would get used to hearing an alarm and ignoring it).

that happens to me sometimes

Maybe your body is telling you that you are not getting enough sleep. Try going to bed earlier.

You may try an alarm for the hearing impaired. You put something under your pillow at night and it vibrates when your alarm is set.
Also you may just need more sleep.
Some of the time I have heard people do not wake because they are in REM sleep and the alarm becomes part of thier dream.
See a doctor if this goes on for much longer.

I have the same problem. Some things that have helped me in the past, is putting my cell phone on the other side of the room so I have to get up to push snooze. I've also set my alarm on my cell phone to a ring tone a normally use because it makes me think someone is calling me and for some reason this always wakes me up.

Hope this helps a little.

Try a different sounding alarm. When are brains become used to something, it becomes easier to ignore or shut out.
