How does one know one is not dreaming?

How does one know one is not dreaming? How could one logically demonstrate to a skeptic that one is "really" there, awake and not just dreaming the entire situation/world around him? Specifically what I'm asking is: which if any philosophers have addressed this problem of *how* one knows one is or is not dreaming?
