Me and my kids sleep in complete dark, I have accustomed them to sleeping in the dark at night since they were newborn babies.
However, I have to admit that they protest if I leave them awake and in complete dark when I put them to bed. There must be some light coming from outside their rooms (the stairs for example) so they can fall sleep. But once asleep I turn off all lights until the next day.

I'm a strange breed of human. Unless my eyes and ears are covered, I won't fall asleep. And I can't fall asleep in the afternoon unless I'm very, very tired. It has to be dark and quiet for me to sleep.

I like it as dark as possible, although not in complete darkness (i.e. when you can't see your hands in front of your face), i had it once when there was a powercut in Kenya in a hotel in Amboseli national park, not a nice feeling when you know there are absolutely allsorts of things in your room and outside.
The closest light source is either my clock, or the porch light downstairs, neither bring alot of light.

Not only does it have to be dark, though not pitch dark, it has to be the right temperature. Too warm and I have a hard time falling asleep, and too cold same thing.
I think by age 7 or 8 I finally gave up the night light, though I do not mind having a night light or dim light elsewhere in the house for those light night trips to the kitchen for water or late night potty trips. But at this point I can easily navigate the house in the dark.

Having spent years as a Freight Dog Flight Mechanic, I can sleep through just about anything, just about anywhere, in just about any temperature and in just about any position! (Those who have been, or are now Freight Dogs, will appreciate this...) The only time that doesn't apply, is after being up working for 36 hours straight, finally getting 4 hours before having to come back to the aircraft, hitting the bed dead tired and having your eyelids snap open and not be able to get a wink of sleep!
I find that I sleep with the lights on, at night, so that when I masturbate (I've been married over 10 years so sex is out of the question!), I can have sex with the lights on!

DAMN! This SUCKS! I just had to go to the next higher age bracket in my profile! :-(

At home, my room was always dark when I went to sleep. Now, my roomate is a moron who fails all of his classes. Buy anyway, he occasionally has a movie on his computer which partially lights up the room, and there's a HUGE gigantic street lamp 5 feet from our second floor window that doesn't need to be there, but it is and it lights up our room if we don't shut the blind. I couldn't sleep with the room normally lit I don't think.

Well as I go to sleep well after dark and wake at the first sign of light in the morning, the answer is yes. It really sucks starting about now as sunrise is 0530. I'd love to be able to sleep until 0700 on weekends. Oh well, winter will be here in a mere 8 months.
I always thought I would work until I died. I find that I am ready to not work anymore.
