I think my record is about 74 hours. A couple of years ago I was working overnights. I woke up about 9pm for work on a Wednesday. Worked through the night, then got home but couldn't sleep. Went to a company function Thursday afternoon, again couldn't sleep after that so went to work that night with no sleep.
Friday, was running around all day getting ready for a trip, starting to get tired. Went to work Friday night, fell asleep for about 5 minutes on my lunch. Got off work at 4am, drove straight to the airport. Checked in for my flight and was waiting at the gate. They announced a delay, I fell asleep for like a minute.
Got on my delayed flight to LAX
. Fell asleep and probably would have slept soundly if it had not been for turbulence and my head hitting the wall (ouch). Got to LA
, went to friends hotel and showered. Went to Disneyland for the whole day. Finally fell asleep about 11pm on Saturday night. 74 hours of being awake, probably 20 minutes of sleep during that whole time.
