Reveiller does not work?

  • se réveiller = to wake up
  • se lever = to get up, to stand up

Just a little confused about when to use "pour" and when not .

That's a broad topic. But in case of pour + infinitive, it indicates a purpose:

  • Je suis allé en France pour apprendre le français. = I went to France to learn French.
  • Je dors tôt pour me réveiller tôt. = I sleep early so that I wake up early.
