That would be my brain working over time, right?Alpha waves are actually related to imagery, and you can use that to your advantage, by trying to build an image of rolling down a highway or some such thing, one that is monotonous, and it will help you to get to sleep. When I have trouble dropping off, as I do, I imagine a journey to Mars in immense detail and the sheer boredom of such a trip puts me out like a light.

Yes they can - you can use imagery to over come this. A system called a Mind Mirror (a simple form of neurofeedback) has been shown to be effective in helping to train you in this direction. Look into it.
