WASHINGTON (AP) - Most people in the United States are getting an extra hour of sleep this weekend, thanks to the annual shift back to standard time.

    

Officially, the change comes at 2 a.m. Sunday, but most people usually set their clocks back before heading to bed Saturday night.

    

Residents of Hawaii, most of Arizona and some U.S. territories don't have to change; Daylight Saving Time is not observed there.

    

Public safety officials say this is also a good time to put a new battery in the smoke alarm, no matter where you live.

    

Daylight Saving Time returns at 2 a.m. local time the second Sunday in March - March 8, 2015.
