    Started a project that will last about a month and I have been getting around 4-5 hours of sleep a day. The other 19-20 hours I spend working. This month sucks but boy oh boy will I be getting some shit done. Damn this business is addicting.

    I sleep between 6-7 hours during the work week and 8-9 during the weekend (my kids are teens :). You're right though as if I am working on a IM project I put a lot of time in and get less sleep.

    Long times, lol.
    I like sleeping. And i'm getting more and more lazy.
    I sometimes do 11 hour naps. But after a few days of that i suddenly start sleeping 8 hour a day.
    And then there is the odd day where i'm just having a good day and work threw the night.
    Or if something stops working and there is panic in the place, lol.
    But i would say i sleep a lot, but irregular.

    I love to sleep and always have. But I have noticed that since joining this forum, I am spending a looooooooooooooooooooot more time on my computer and that means less sleep. To tell you the truth, I don't mind it.

    I try to get atleast 7 hours everyday and I feel like I am more productive that way. It is probably different for all of us as some people can sleep a few hours each day and be just fine whereas others need atleast 8-10 hours.

    When your mind is churning like it is after reading the threads on here, it is hard to get sleep. You always want to do a little more and you know it as well as I do, an hour or two on the computer passes by in a jiffy!

    Hahah I know what you mean! I try to avoid going on BHW soon before I plan I going to bed because before I know it I have been up for 3-4 hours and all fired up.

    Sleeps alot ecouse of my medicine but..

    Approx, 6-10 hours per day, sometimes 16 hours.
    I let my programs do the rest.. ;)

    Then i relax some hours, then work hard some hours.. Not more or less.

    So overall ... 6-10 hours, depends on what day it is.
    And yes i also got kids,, 4 of em.

    Well for me...

    Usually about 6-hours if I do not have school the next day.
    7-8 hours if there's school.

    But when it comes to school vacation/holidays, I will only have 5-6 hours of sleep. And yes, IM is so addictive!

    barely got 2hrs last night, ive been known to work 48hrs straight before used to be able to do it all the time, but with recent health issues its not cool and certainly dont recommend it!

    guys seriously always try and get at least 5 or 6 hrs under you belt! you need to rest your body/brain!

    I tend to work in bursts of 24-30 hours, then sleep for 8.

    Now @ home, learning and focusing on IM full time, so I don't have to revolve around soicable hours. Teh intarwebs never sleep right?

    Sleep. An overrated sign of weakness.






    Just kidding, of course. But that's how it feels sometimes.
