    $\begingroup$ @warspyking I don't want to be a grumpy Gus, but you ought to put forth more effort here. There's no theme, no rhyme, no intrigue... I'd hate to see an amusing type of word puzzle tarnished by an abundance of hastily written riddles. $\endgroup$ – Roland Aug 22 '15 at 18:17
  • $\begingroup$ @Roland You seem to think I don't think about these things before I post. I purposely make sure they don't rhyme. $\endgroup$ – warspyking Aug 22 '15 at 19:02

WATER.

WAT (see here).

Repeat temple's last to electrical

WATT is a unit of (e.g. electrical) power.

Replace electricity's first to sleep well at a friend's

BATT as in batting (wadding for a mattress) - thanks Somo145

warspy, you're making these too easy now! Also the watt is a unit of any sort of power, not just electrical.

  • $\begingroup$ I agree, it would be too easy, if that last answer really was "Matt". But no. $\endgroup$ – warspyking Aug 22 '15 at 17:45
  • $\begingroup$ @warspyking Well, there aren't many words ending with "att"! $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Aug 22 '15 at 17:48
