Um, forgive me but how does it screw up your sleep? I have to be at work at the same time all year and therefore get up at the same time all year?  The only difference for me is I can take my walk outside 3 days a week instead of on the treadmill.

I go into work rather early and have a long commute. My normal time to get out of bed is around 6:00 AM and out the door by 6:30. 

When DST hits, sure, technically I am still getting up at "6:00 AM" but in real physical terms it is actually the 5:00 AM from just a few days prior. The first day (Monday) isn't all that bad, because it's just one day. By Wednesday, I'm at three straight days of my brain and body feeling like it's "getting up an hour early" and am ready to punt my cell phone out the window when the alarm sounds.

This morning (the fifth work day past the time change) wasn't too terrible, so I'm finally getting accustomed to the change. It's still ridiculous and utterly unnecessary.
