I mainly need air circulation to sleep. I gotta have that fan on.

No, I like quiet. But I've slept with fans on. I think it just has to be white noise--anything repetitive is harder to ignore.

Strangely enough, I need it desperately. I had bad allergies growing up, so my parents bought me an air filtration machine. The thing whirred louder than a fan every night. Since I have been sleeping with a humming machine all my life, sleeping without white noise is extremely stressful for me. If there is no noise, my brain runs amok, thoughts pacing at 100mph. I consider this a curse. Because it is hugely limiting to require white noise when I am visiting someone else, or away on vacation.

A little noise doesn't bother me but neither does silence nor a little light.
Once I'm really sound asleep, even a lot of noise won't usually awaken me.
We rarely set the alarm clock since I can always wake up around five and get moving on workdays.
Wife usually wakes up around 5:30 and if not I'll awaken her.
The one requirement we have is for a cool room in which to sleep.
