    Go to the doctor. I have a sleep disorder and am like this. It's better if I put the alarm clock across the room but I've been known to turn it off. Heck, I've been known to throw away things (like wrist braces I used to wear) in my sleep 'cause they irritated me.

    I'd ask for a sleep study with MSLT (nap test). I take stimulants to keep me awake. Even so, if something exciting is happening I do wake up. I'm not terribly functional but I wake up. I have no memory of not being tired (even on a lot of stimulants).

    Anyway, please see your doctor.

    I've exactly same problem if I've (a) day(s) off. If I've school/workday/I know I have to go somewhere I can wake up. So as to me, I think it's lack of self-discipline .

    Still, sounds that you really have problems with awakening so I second that you could meet your doctor. When waiting this, do you have tried to hide your alarm clock in the evening? Maybe it if you have to do something before you can turn the alarm off helps you keep a little more awake.
