Daylight Savings Time 2011: Don't Forget To Set Your Clocks

WASHINGTON (AP) -- It's the weekend to spring ahead to daylight saving time.

For one night, there's the prospect of 60 fewer minutes of shut-eye, but ahead are many months with an extra hour of evening sunlight.

The official change was at 2 a.m. local time on Sunday.

Not everyone in the U.S. makes the switch from standard time. The exceptions are Hawaii, most of Arizona, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas.

Standard time returns Nov. 6.

NOTE: The technical term for the occasion is daylight saving time, not daylight savings time.
