Yes, but is she convincing herself that she's only taking a nap? If not then it's not going to work, you have to mentally prepare yourself. Also, the 90 minute cycle thing works pretty well. She needs to plan for 1, 2, 3, etc. so that she's not trying to get up during deep sleep. The first few hours of sleep consist mostly of deep sleep (very difficult to wake up from) which progressively shortens the more cycles you sleep. As they shorten the length of REM sleep increases... Anyway, not the point really... The point is that she's got to plan in 90 min cycles instead of hours like most people do. If she trys to wake up in say 2 hours, she'll likely be smack in the middle of her 2nd sleep cycle and in deep sleep. She needs to plan for 90 minutes, 3 hours, 4-1/2 hours, etc.
