I usually crawl into bed around 12:30am and always get up at 6am. So I guess I get 5 1/2 hours sleep a night.

That is pretty usual for me too, although the latter is not by choice. I love sleep and love the rare weekend feeling of being able to turn over and go back to sleep when I have forgotten to turn my alarm off after the working week.

On a school night I will usually get around 7 1/2 hours of sleep. Unless I have to work I will then get around 6 to 6 1/2 hours. On the weekend I will get like 9 to 11 1/2 hours.

Well, during the school year I get around 5-6 hours of sleep. On weekends or during summer break I average around 9-10 hours, unless I go to work that day I get around 7-8.

I hear ya......I sometimes get to roll over and get an extra hour of sleep on the weekend, but not too often as my 3 cats and 1 dog usually wake me up because they want food or the doggie needs to go out for her morning walk.

On a weekday I usually sleep about 6-8hrs a night and on a weekend or when I don't have to get up on a weekday e.g. for college, I usually sleep for about 7-9hrs.

My record is 16 hours. Passed out on the couch one day at 2PM after a long night, woke up at 10PM, went up to my bed, passed right out again, and woke up sometime around 6AM.

Depending on what day it is depends what time I go to bed at;

On a school day, I'm usually in bed between 10 and 11pm and out by 11:30, then I get up at 7:30ish, so about 8hours....

On a weekend or holiday time, I'm in bed between 1 and 4am and out at about 12pm / 1pm. So there it's between 9 and 12 hours in bed.....  Silly

Right now I'm getting about 4-5 hours of sleep per night on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights because I have to be up for work at 5:00 am, the other nights I'll get a good 8-10 hours of sleep because I'm either off or my shift doesn't start until 13:30.

I need to sleep at least five hours, but in general I sleep around 7,5 hours, that's about three full cycles. During the week-end I can easily go for ten hours, like last night.

Quoting B747forever (Reply 6):
12hours !!!!!!!

OMG

I cant understand that. Sleeping off a half day.

A few years ago, I had a job that was really energy consuming. I worked eight hours a day, but I often had the feeling of having worked for two days. That meant that regularly on friday night I crashed into my bed at 8 or 9pm and slept for 15 hours. Finally I left that job, because I was too frustrated to sleep half of my week-end.

I can easily do 15 hours. My record was 1 day after a surgery. Right now, i'm working Sun-Thurs from 10-6 and I easily sleep from 11AM-9PM but do 11AM-7PM which is 8 hours.

I usually get about 7.5 during the school year and 9 during the summer. Although, on Thursday there was a graduation party at which I slept from 4:30 AM to 6:30 AM and then didn't sleep again until 11 last night. So, I only slept 2 hours out of 40 from Thursday morning to Friday night.

It depends on what city I am in, if I am single, I came home from a club, etc etc etc... I like to get 8 or 9 when I can but I rarely do. Lately the way my schedule is I am getting about 6 by the time I hot the sack and I stretch evey last minute I can before I get up. Even when I am home and off I cannot seem to stay in bed I have to get up and get about.

During the week i get about 6, at the weekend i sleep as long as my body tells me i should, usually about 10.

The most i have slept is around 16 hours, however this was after almost 2 days awake - came back from LA and didn't sleep on the flight, went out that night and didn't get back until 9am. I was pretty tired, but wanted to get back into routine, so kept it out until around 10pm and then went to sleep. Of course i slept so long that i ended up messing up my routine anyway.

It's the longest I've ever slept. Went to bed at 11:15 PM last night and got up at 11:30 this morning.

Thats nothin, A decade ago coming back from a school camping trip on a bus, we spent roughly 24 hours travelling (with intemediate stops during the day). When we finally arrived in the morning, I was awake for a few hours but by mid afternoon had fallen asllep, and slept for 16 hours.

Thats my record...16 hours.

My sleep patterns are quite strange, normally I don't need anywhere near the same amount of sleep as a regular person. It's fairly normally for me to sleep 8 hours in 48, basically sleeping every other night, because I'm just not tired after say 16 hours of being awake and will carry on working - I've done this for weeks in a row and it doesn't affect me at all. Apart from that I'll stay in bed for as long as possible - nice and warm! Big grin

I work nights ( 2245 - 0715 ) and, with single-minded determination to get sleep, coupled with a rigid routine that allows time for it, I get 7 hrs on a good day, though I wake up often. Doesn't always work out, is but usually does. Still feel angry and resentful when the alarm goes off at 2100, but then I've never been much of a ready and cheerful riser ( morning or night ) as long as I can remember. A few cups of coffee though and I'm just fine.

My days ( nights ) off I relish sleeping at night and totally indulge myself to sleep all I want, usually 8-9 hours.

When on my normal schedule; anywhere from 3 - 5 hours a day, except on weekends, then I get as much as 6 or 8. When I'm on a dayshift schedule; 6 - 8 a night.

I always strive for eight hours. I can function fine on 6.5, for a couple of days, anyway. Less than that for more than one or two nights and I get very grumpy. Going to the east coast for business trips is always difficult for me since I cannot get to sleep early enough to get a good amount of sleep.

I LOVE to sleep and am not a morning person, although it's much easier to get up early in the summer, when the sky's clear, the sun's coming up over the trees I can see out my office window, the window is open and the air is cool and calm. That is really nice. But gray, dark, rainy winters...forget it! I want to sleep until 8 or later!  Smile
