A father knitted his baby’s first year of sleep pattern data into a blanket - The Verge Jul 2019
"Seung Lee has created a tangible, very soft representation of his baby’s first year of sleep patterns in the form of a knitted blanket. Lee collected the sleep data by manually logging it with the Baby Connect app, and used JavaScript and Python to convert the data to visualize the knitting pattern. He then built a browser-based HTML/Javascript tool that kept track of the stitch colors and allowed him to reference it wherever he was knitting from. The result is The Sleep Blanket, a beautiful keepsake that tells the story of the baby and parents’ first year together."

"The precision of knitting makes it a great medium for data visualization, such as the time when a German commuter marked all the times her train was delayed in a rail delay scarf."

Sleep and dreaming: Where do our minds go at night? | New Scientist Jan 2013
"dreams tend to be silent movies – with just half containing traces of sounds. It is even more unusual to enjoy a meal or feel damp grass beneath your feet – taste, smell and touch appearing only very rarely. Similar studies have tried to pin down some of the factors that might influence what we dream about, though they have struggled to find anything reliable."

"the idea that sleep helps to cement our memories for future recall "

[Mark Blagrove at Swansea University]'s "team has found that memories enter our dreams in two separate stages. They first float into our consciousness on the night after the event itself, which might reflect the initial recording of the memory, and then they reappear between five and seven days later, which may be a sign of consolidation"

"the sleeping brain also forges links to other parts of your mental autobiography, allowing you to see associations between different events"

"Perhaps the intense images are an indication of what a difficult process it is integrating a traumatic event with the rest of our autobiography."

"Despite these advances, many, many mysteries remain. Top of the list is the question of the purpose of our dreams: are they essential for preservation of our memories, for instance – or could we manage to store our life’s events without them? “There’s no consensus,” says [Patrick McNamara at Northcentral University]."

"some research suggesting that TV may have caused a major shift in the form and content of our dreams"

"Open Control Panel and go to Security and Maintenance, then expand the Maintenance part and click on "Change maintenance settings" under "Automatic Maintenance". It at least has the options for changing the time and disabling wake from sleep, which probably should fix this."

Windows 10 wakes randomly from hibernate - Microsoft Community
Didn't work 10 Dec 2017, step 4: already disabled
What I forgot to write down in my first post but did try and might help you is, that you should also go into the hardware adapter details page of you network adapter (Network > Properties > Change adapter settings > Ethernet >
Properties > Configure... > Advanced), and check for the following options:
- Shutdown Wake Up
- Wake on magic packet
- Wake on pattern match
- any other option with "WOL" or "Wake" in its name
and set all of them to Disabled.
In my experience setting these to Disabled greatly reduced the chance of the computer waking up unexpectedly, even though it did not eliminate the problem completely. Also, these settings should be all suppressed by having the wake options disabled in the BIOS and in Windows, but somehow they just don't seem to do it.

BBC News - The myth of the eight-hour sleep
"Today, most people seem to have adapted quite well to the eight-hour sleep, but Ekirch believes many sleeping problems may have roots in the human body's natural preference for segmented sleep as well as the ubiquity of artificial light."

A Sleep Battle of the Sexes -
"Women tend to have more deep sleep and awaken fewer times during the night than men do. They also weather some of the effects of a lack of sleep better than men, according to recent studies. Still, men overall say they are more satisfied with the amount and quality of their shut-eye than are women. "
