No,

Mobile phone and ipod are in docking stations on the night stand when in the bedroom and I don't have a tv or anything else with a remote in the room.

I have a clock that displays the time on the ceiling. It is also a pink noise generator and I usually program it for "rainstorm". It plugs into the wall so I guess that disqualifies it. Also, it stays on the nightstand, as would a remote control if I had one. Must the device literally share my bed to qualify?

Perderabo,

I took it to mean literally in the bed. I know a lot of people sleep with their mobile phone in the bed either because of on-call work or as an an alarm clock.

Also a question. How well does the pink noise generator work for you? I have often wondered how effective they are.

The pink noise generator works wonders. I grew up without air conditioning and in the summer we used window fans. I still like to do that sometimes and I noticed that the drone of the fan really helps me sleep. I bought my clock radio without noticing that it had a pink noise generator. I just wanted the ceiling clock projector. I pushed the rainstorm button for the heck of it and it really helped me get to sleep.

This is the one I have: Amazon.com: Homedics SS-4500 SoundSpa Classic Clock Radio

I find that server fan noise is almost as good as "pink noise"

after 8 years I find it hard to sleep without my server fan noise.

Sleeping next to devices on the nightstand qualifies Smilie
