sleepfilter: How do I 'reset' my body clock? I'm generally a good sleeper, but I find periodically (and lately), I wake up at the exact same (and weird) time every day.

I usually sleep soundly, and through the night, however every once and a while (and for the past week or so) I wake up at pretty much the exact same odd hour.
This week it has been 5:35 am. There is nothing in my bedroom to disturb my sleep at this time, it just seems that I wake up for some reason. Generally I'm very tired when this occurs and I usually fall back into a very deep sleep (until my alarm goes off 2 hours later)
I'm fascinated by the fact that my body is so precise (generally I wake up at the same time to the minute), but a bit concerned that its trying to tell me something.
Any ideas, or suggestions on how to 'reset' my body clock properly would be helpful.
