    Default habit of being awaken on mid night?

    Hello teachers,

    When we say we don't sleep in day time,We can say I don't have the habit of sleeping in day time.(Should it be in the day time?)

    How to say it for night that we don't be awake on mid night?.

    I don't have the habit of being awaken on mid night.

    Thank you.

    Remember that "awake" is an adjective and "awaken" is a verb.
