Not only do I leave my lights on all night in the kitchen, my TV hasn't been off for more than an hour since we bought in 2 years ago.
I'm not sure if it's being scared of the dark, or just the feeling of not being the only one awake.
My husband is cool with it--however I'm sure my electric bill would be much less if I didn't do this.
Lately, I have added the white light of my iPhone -- combined with the happy glow of ask.com's Q's and A's - to keep me safe at night.

I usually play my iPod, i don't like the flashing of the tv but the sound of the iPod blocks out any weird noises!

I'm in my 40's and have 4 night lights in my bedroom at all times. I also have nightlights on just about every outlet through out the house. The dark freaks me out. Always feels like there is someone/thing there watching me. If leaving the TV on puts you at ease, leave it on.

I like sleeping in silence. Preferably with a night light, in case of a sudden awakening where I need to see where I need to go, otherwise I don't mind the darkness. I may fall asleep while watching TV in the living room, but that's a another story.
