6.5-7.5<br><br>
I can't function the next day if I get any less. In college I used to stay up and pull all-nighters and stuff to finish papers, but now I am a wreak the next day if I don't get enough sleep.

7.5 hours + 1 hour of lying in bed before I fall asleep.<br><br><br><br>
I eat well (cough) so I end up not oversleeping.<br><br><br><br>
Teenagers do need more sleep, though. Shame on you Keegan for not looking after yourself, but /shrug

Not enough <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I should be sleeping about 7-8 hours per night, but the last few nights I have had a hard time making myself go to bed. I tend to read right before bed and always try to squeeze in just one more chapter before turning out the lights. Also it seems that some of the most engaging and fascinating tv come on right before I go to bed. I guess the weekends were created to catch up on sleep<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

I typically sleep between 5 and 6 hours per day... and then a 'power nap" for an hour or 90 minutes later on. This works well for about 7 to 10 days and then I need a a good 8 hour sleep.<br><br><br><br>
I find if I oversleep (anything over 9 hours), I get stiffness in my back.

7 usually. How do some of you sleep ten hours? I've never slept for that long in my life! I wonder what determines how much sleep each of us needs...

I have determined that 8.25 hours is my optimum. I usually get that much b/c I am barely functional on any day I get much less than that.....mmm sleep is good! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

"and then a 'power nap" ?<br><br><br><br>
Power nap ? ... sounds like an oxymoron<br><br><br><br><br><br>
I get 8 hours. I (currently) go to bed at like 4am and get up at noon ...

Not enough!! I'm usually in bed for 8 or more hours a night, but I have terrible problems with insomnia...some nights I lay awake for hours, others I wake up 4 or 5 times throughout the course of the night. So, I probably get between 4 and 6 hours of sleep a night, but usually no more than 2 hours of uninterrupted sleep.<br><br><br><br>
I think I would probably do best on a sleep cycle like d.k.'s b/c around about 4:30 a.m. is when I fall into a deep sleep.
