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.
