My sleep patterns are all messed up. I have discovered that essentially if I stay up to about 1-2AM and get up about 7-8AM, I hit the floor running as soon as I am up and feel completely energized all day. Change that to say 11am to 5am (which is what I do now due to my job) and I am worthless until about noon and it doesn't matter how much coffee I put in my system.

One thing I have read is that light makes a big difference in waking up. It's always dark when I wake up. For Christmas, my wife bought me an alarm clock that gradually raises the light level, using 'natural' light, for about half an hour before the noise goes off. I'm going to start giving it a try this week.
