I wake up at 9am and usually don’t sit down at my desk until 10am unless there’s something urgent I need to respond to.

I’m in New York. I monitor my emails on my phone but get online at about 9.

I’ve been remote since 2018 and I’m rarely at my desk before 9:30. Usually closer to 10. But I’m always accessible by phone.

Depends on your time zone. West coast here, I’m online by 9 at latest, but frequently have calls starting around 7:30. I do expect my east coast team mates to start handling things before I’m up, but I also deliberately try to “change guards” and make sure they are logging off before midnight their time (or earlier) as much as possible.
