I submitted 4-5 days, I have a wierd thing about sleeping... I hate to waste too much of my time here, so I rarely sleep for more than 3-5 hours. But once I had to change internet and the technician would come monday from 7 to 16 a clock (yes hole day waiting!), and I just want to stay up at night to 3-4 a clock, so I just stayed up all night... But the dude didn't come the next day - argh, so I stayed up all day and night again waiting for him to come next day - STILL didn't come, argh, at this point I was so tired, but still I just stayed up... days went, the dude didn't come all week. So friday I went to work, and when I was about to go home about 16 a clock, was waiting for the train, I was awake but my hole body suddenly collapsed, fell down. Ok, home to get some sleep ups wink5

It's been a while since I've gone more than 30 hours without sleep, but on occasion I'll stay up a couple nights in a row. It doesn't even have to be for anything special or important. tounge2 If I'm doing something interesting at night, I won't feel like stopping it 'till dawn. xD

I think my longest is a little less than three days.

I've gone camping a week ago and stayed awake all night, I hallucinated quite a lot. I even fell asleep the next day, -home again-, while watching TV. This never happens to me, I was planning to WILD that night too =.= sadblauw

Only a day...when it gets to the next morning i feel all hyper and stuff. I was at my friend's house and we did it, and then i came home and was like "woo, i stayed up all night!" and around 9AM i fell asleep and slept until 4, messing up my sleep schedule for a couple of days. Luckily it was summer so i didn't have school.

Who said they went without sleep for over a week?!

This is probably a bad idea, but how about a competition for who can go longest without sleep. It would have to take place sometime in the summer holidays seeing as going into school\college without any sleep is a bad idea.

I am now expecting someone to tell me a list of all the bad symptoms of getting no sleep but oh well I want to try this anyway.

The longest I've gone without sleep before is about 36 hours.

Yes, that does sound like a bad idea. Here's a wikipedia article about sleep deprivation

Yeah I know, but they're all short term if it gets too much I can just go to sleep.(Hopefully not to wake up and find that I killed my family in a psychotic rage)

Haha... symptoms include:

-weight loss
-weight gain

actually that probably due to the hypothalamus playing up.

-death

Who said all symptoms were temporary?

And the most feared:

-yawning



I also just saw on Wikipedia that the world record is either 11 or 18 days.

lach1 Well, atleast it doesn't include no net weight change tounge2

Well weight loss and weight gain are no big deal that can be sorted out by eating a load of chocolate\not eating a load of choclate.

I don't think you could physicaly stay awake for long enough to actually die from sleep seprivation and if I found myself going mental or really ill I'd just go to sleep. I just want to see how long it takes for that kind of thing to happen, and briefly what it's like.

34 hours. Not very impressive perhaps, but I won't try it again anytime soon. I can barely function without atleast 6 hours of sleep a night, just think about what no sleep does to me.

20 hours. Pretty pathetic compared to many other people here, but I pride myself on getting plenty of sleep. I feel miserable and stupid with little of it, and that's no way to go through life. If I can help it, I won't surpass one full day without glorious sleep. ^^

Did you read the article linked around somewhere back there?

What they do in lab experiments with rats is tehy have a curved living surface which works a little like a pirate ship at theme parks... rocking from side to side (albeit very slowly in the experiment) so you have to move to the other end at least every few minutes otherwise youll just roll down. So you have to either stay awake or get woken up when you start rolling.

and @Tamara and sno_isulli... This isnt a competition. You should be quite pleased to have had so much sleep.
