Seriously too early

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2007dkbf.php

In short, a 4.8 magnitude quake hit Ishikawa at 3:45 AM! Now thats not THAT strong, just some shaking and moving, but its certainly strong enough to wake up the whole damn prefecture. Well I guess some heavy sleepers didn't notice it, but I sure as heck did. Its pretty hard to get back to sleep after being woken up by an earthquake too, no matter how weak it may have been. Seriously Earth, if 7 AM is too early, than 3:45 is way too early!

This begs the question, "How do super- sound sleepers manage to wake up on time if even an earthquake doesn't do the trick?"
