Weird sleep pattern

Sleep problems filter! what are some possible causes of my very weird sleeping schedule? I have been, for most of my life, functioning the best on a 2-hour nap in the evening, and then maybe 3-4 hours between 3 and 7am. I am not intentionally doing biphasic sleep-- I just get these strong urges to sleep (or to be awake) at certain times of the day. For the past 2-3 weeks, I am just all over the place in terms of sleep. Mainly, I am incredibly tired and achy the whole day, but I can't fall asleep when I try. As soon as the sun goes down I feel alive again. I feel like I am sleep deprived all the time, but there's also no telling of when I can actually fall asleep. [more inside]

OSX freeze on wake?

After the OSX 10.8.2 update several days ago, my laptop freezes on wake from hibernate (at least, it only does it when it has been asleep for a while). I posted on the Apple support forums here, but no one has responded. There are excerpts from my system log there. Things I've tried: fixing permissions, SMC reset, turning off my gmail calendar updates (I saw a lot of errors in the log having to do with that) but no luck. Any ideas?

iPad shutdown app

I watch movies when I go to bed at night. When I wake up in the morning my iPad is exhausted.

Is there a commercial or free app that does this or can I create one easily in this suggestion?

Sleep apnea + allergies = bad sleep. Help!

I have sleep apnea, so I use a full-mouth mask when sleeping. I also have bad allergies, and I have found that for the last week or so, I'm waking up in the middle of the night, sneezing a bunch of times, and immediately get a stuffed nose that I can't clear, so I sleep the rest of the night without my mask. Any tips to combat this (meds don't help), either to keep me asleep, or help me once I wake up?
