You've probably also seen literary agents (and/or editors) talking about how much they'd prefer writers to avoid said trope. And I get it. I really do. But I'm a contrarian by nature (or a know-it-all, whatever) and so of course I know of good examples of this as well. Or at least one.
The one which comes immediately to my mind is Kafka's The Metamorphosis. The opening line?
One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a horrible vermin.
To me, this is a powerful opening sentence. This sentence begs me to read more. Is everybody's "Main character wakes up/feels things" like this? Nope. Hell no.
I've been guilty of "the wake up" I think only once, in Learn to Howl, and even then, I've fiddled with it. I did, in fact, want to avoid the eyeroll moment of "oh look, yet another shitty manuscript in which somebody wakes up in the first sentence. Yawn. Rejection." My main character comes to awareness in the opening, yes, but she hasn't been sleeping, quite. I feel like it works. Either it will or it won't, one day I'll find out. And by then I may have fiddled with it further. It's the nature of the beast.
I poked around on TV Tropes (a dangerous rabbit hole, to be sure) and while I didn't find just one specific "wake up" trope, I did find this handy dandy list of Sleep and Wakefulness Tropes which I'm sure could cover everything you'd like to reference in the gamut.
