Minecraft Nightmares (or, how to not get woken by mobs!)
How to construct a safe sleeping area in 1.5 version?

I've built a rather large house with a high roof. I put up light everywhere to make it bright enough that a monster won't spawn in the house.

When I go to sleep in that house, monsters always spawn. So, I made a 4 square wide room, with only a bed, a door and 2 lights. Door closed, monsters still spawn inside the room!

Is that a bug or am I doing something wrong?

    See gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/17377/… - you probably need thicker walls. – Shinrai Jun 14 '11 at 15:27
  • Yes, this is a bug, although it isn't considered to be a bug (so I wouldn't bother reporting it). It can be triggered by creating two doors, but it is triggered by some other stuff as well (having door on a different level then the surrounding ground for example). – Let_Me_Be Jun 14 '11 at 15:36

  • Could also be the door assuming your bed isn't propped up against the wall. Remember to insert doors from the outside of the house otherwise mobs can get in. – Neil Jun 14 '11 at 16:07

    also, have you checked underneath your bed? maybe there's only a 1 block thick floor... – Alex Jun 14 '11 at 16:42
