Getting others to respect your boundaries/treat you with respect?

My sister called me late last night about something that wasn't urgent but it disrupted my sleep and because I have bipolar, type I, it's really important for me to consistently get good sleep. How can I get her to respect my boundaries? (Turning off the phone seems like a no-brainer, but either the drugs or the illness impact my memory at times.)
This is just one example/symptom of disrespect--she knows perfectly well about my sleep needs. Obviously, I can't change her. I've about come to some kind of ephipany that I must, somehow change, even if it's just my frame of mind. Books, resources, mantras, ideas? Thanks.
