WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Most Americans can treat themselves
Sunday to an extra hour of sleep after most of the nation
switches early in the morning to standard time -- requiring
residents to turn their clocks back one hour.
According to federal law, the official changeover is at 2
a.m. the last Sunday in October -- except in Hawaii, Arizona
and parts of Indiana, which do not observe daylight-saving
time. Daylight-saving time returns, and clocks are moved
ahead one hour, on the first Sunday of April.
