I've had the same problem.. But gradually I slept exactly at the same time, and got up when I needed to, then I just happened to naturally get used to it! I can wake up naturally now... but sometimes I still need the alarm clock..

Wake up naturally should really be stated as condition yourself to wake up at a certain hour and find some way to set the habit into your mind. I wake up naturally at either 130 or 330 in the morning but this natural waking is due to many years of getting up to look at the share market and there is a 2 hour change in opening time due to nz and usa daylight saving times so after a few days I naturally ajust to this. . Naturally is more correctly un-natural and simply a habit that can become a curse if you are not careful.

To build on Peter's post, to wake up naturally at a certain time, you need to make a regular habit of waking up at that specific time. Habitually waking up at a certain hour trains your circadian (sir-KAY-dee-in) rhythm, which is essentially your body's alarm clock, to wake you up when you want to.

An example of this is waking up every weekday at say 6:30, then come Saturday when you plan to sleep in until noon, you find yourself waking up naturally very early anyway.

A google search on circadian rhythm will provide you a whole bunch of info.

Ok but do you mean wake at 5 hrs after you fall asleep or always at a certain time, even if you fall asleep 11 or 1 hours before it?

for me its a bit of both, a long sleep is around 3 to 4 hours but I will also wake up at a time if that is what I am used to.
