My Klon-opinion is similar to yours. It's great, not just for my social phobia, but for sleep too.
In fact, I take it all (1.0 mg) in the morning with my Provigil (usually a low-ish 100 mg), yet the Klonopin still helps me sleep like a baby at night. That said, while I've never -- and don't intend to -- take Provigil by itself, I think Provigil may have a mild crashing effect as bedtime approaches that actually facilitates sleep. BTW, even though Provigil keeps me wide awake during the day, I have no problem taking a daytime nap when I want to. That kind of "user-control" is one of the things I love about Provigil, or more precisely about a Provigil/Klonopin combo.
P.S. When I take Klonopin at night, I sleep fine but actually feel somewhat *less* refreshed in the morning. So I guess our Klon-opinions aren't *completely* in synch.

I take my Provigil and Wellbutrin in the morning and I feel stimulated but calm at the same time (there is a God in heaven!). When the effects of the Klonipin start to wear off is around 4-8 in the evening. Since I just take it as a mood stabilizer anyway, it’s not a big deal for me, and ITS ALMOST TIME FOR THE NEXT DOSE!
