Everyone's at it
Our milk-person seems to perform their monthly accounts on the dot of midnight once a month. Cue "new email" alert from phone, if I've not remembered to turn data and WiFi off before going to bed. FreeNAS (or whatever it's called these days informs me it's starting - and then finishing - a scrub, by email at about 2am most mornings, too.
And as for the blasted car... it has an annoying habit of doing the "warning bleep", flashing up a message on the little LCD display between the speedometer and the rev. counter, and then flashing it away again before your eyes have even had a chance to dip down, let alone refocus. On the rare occasion when I've caught it, it seems to be the collision avoidance alert, which is the very last thing that should be distracting me at a crucial moment, and often turns out to be incorrect anyway as anyone older than about three can see that there's no way I'm going to run into that hedge, and even if I did it'd hardly tickle the wing mirror.
On my own car I've managed to turn the parking sensors off. There is a real physical switch on the dash somewhere. It's impossible to do this permanently in the wife's car which means, as I reverse carefully down the drive at a relative's house, the system gives me no useful information at all as I brush past the various overgrown shrubs and grasses. On top of that, when it is dark, the LCD turns on - even when I've switched it "off" - to show me a useless graphic of the car reversing, which totally ruins the lighting environment and makes it much more difficult to see in the mirrors. Even if I push the "back" button to turn it off again, the first time a feathered grass-head brushes past one of the sensors, the blasted thing comes back on!
