This question touches upon whether or not TVs and DVD players are always permissible, or whether they are always forbidden, or whether it depends.

@MonicaCellio: True, Shokhet also quoted R' Bodner in his answer. But AFAICT, Shokhet didn't quote R' Bodner's words about wine; Shokhet only quoted R' Bodner's words about sleeping pills.

Dear readers: Or you could take a time-release melatonin tablet before Shabbat starts. Some claim to work for as long as eight hours. But be careful, in general, with slow-release melatonin products. The large doses of melatonin included (sometimes 3 mg or more of melatonin!) may overwhelm your system, cause tolerance to your body's endogenous melatonin, and may cause sleeping problems a day or two later. Ask a doctor or specialist.

comment Seeking Kaf HaHaim:
Thanks for your question. As Aryeh points out below, there's more than one book by that title. Could you please tell us the name of the author of the book you want?

@IsaacMoses: Were these rabbis (such as synagogue rabbis) who were asked wide-ranging questions by members of the congregation and who would provide answers?
