I've made it my goal to establish a fixed 10 pm to 6 am (or 22:00 to 6:00) sleep schedule , regardless of whether I have school or not. But I still need to work it out.

When I have insomnia, I just bust out a PlayStation. Puts me back to sleep every time.

The thing with me personally is that I get sick of waiting to fall asleep. Even when i've been awake since 6 A.M., when I try to sleep at 10:00 P.M., it seemingly takes over an hour or two for me since I spent the whole day active and alert doing various things such as school among other stuff. I've actually questioned before why it isn't practically automatic to fall asleep at night at times when you think you should. So I just use that for an advantage to mess around for 2 hours and it's then I can fall asleep right away. My body is weird. >_>

If you have been following a fixed sleep schedule for at least a couple of weeks, then it may just be possible that you don't require as much time to sleep as others. But you can take that with a grain of salt since I'm not your physician :P

Seriously, last night, I was up late doing some programming, but then I started getting tired. I turned off my computer, turned off the light, and got into bed.......where I then picked up my phone, and began playing games for at least a good 30 minutes.

I don't seem to sleep much. No matter when I go to sleep, I always, always, wake up at 4 a.m. I've tried various things, but I always wake up at 4. This means I'm tired throughout the day. I sleep at night, but not as much as I'd like.

I'm the son of a U.S. marine, and I fight to stay asleep most of the time, not to stay awake. That milk making you feel woozy is called lactose intolerant. Everybody is technically lactose intolerant once they grow up and don't really require milk as part of their diet.
I switched to drinking soy milk, and it's way tastier and better for you. I just couldn't stand milk for the last year or so.
I try to go to sleep, and if I can't, I just get back up.

Well you can dislike regular milk however you want while I drink it, it's satisfyingly "drikable" to me, so I think it's fine. I'm not allergic to anything as far as I know and i've tried lots of foods.

I'm up and running at 5:30 every morning. Then I go to bed at around 11 or 11:30. If I go to bed earlier then that, I'll wake up in the middle of the night and not be able to go back to sleep. And I hate the feelng of getting too much sleep so I prefer to get up at the crack of dawn.

I need to take meds to go to sleep at night, since I obsessively feel that I can't shut down, and would stay up until I crashed. The meds I take are for obsessiveness, though. Now that I don't feel compelled to stay awake, I can go to bed when I feel tired (usually...had trouble sleeping last night, though).

Freaking Fire Emblem has been keeping me awake up to this kind of hour (almost 5:30 AM at the time of this post) for the past few days. But I'm home schooled, so waking up at 11:00 doesn't matter (to me at least).

Just play more FE, and that problem will disappear. Trust me, I'm a mask salesman. :3

I stay up late on my laptop and/or playing games every night (it's almost half one in the morning right now) so I always lie in if I haven't got college so I normally get 4 hours sleep if I have college the next day and 5-6 if I don't. Since I get such little sleep, it doesn't take long at all for me to fall asleep when I lie down in bed, normally 5 minutes or less but there are occasions where it takes about 10 minutes for me to fall asleep.

I'm usually awake until all hours anyway. I suffer insomnia, which has nothing to do with electronics, but I find myself playing games/ surfing the internet at 3, 4 am because I can't sleep.

The benefit is that I get to do a load of work every day, play plenty of games and keep my website up and running. The downside is I'll be dead young.

Same here, except my meds aren't for obsessiveness. I just have a really hard time sleeping naturally without medication..
