nods at what Summerlander said.

I've been noticing that a lot here, people getting into the right kind of state but then not succeeding to have a good LD, so thinking they failed when they haven't built on the state. (its making it all the more a hit or miss kind of thing). People getting stuck on the in between or HI state.

Yep. Especially when they have expectations as to what the hypnagogic or hypnopompic states should be like. Sometimes they even aim for vibrations erroneously believing that they are required for success.

To all the newbies out there: any strange sensation--be that vibrations, sounds, images or an amalgamation of all--will do! Amplify whatever oddity you are experiencing and then separate from the perceived body stencil. I either roll over and "out" or I just get out of bed to find that I have moved incorporeally despite the realism.
