    Well, depending on your age, it'll vary, but the most agreed-upon length is 7-8 hours. If you're in high school (like me), it's smart to get ~8 hours, but this rarely happens. When you don't get enough sleep, your whole body starts to deteriorate (good thing you noticed). If you're missing sleep because of homework or projects, take the time to get things done during the day. If you just aren't tired, even in the wee hours of the morning, try exercising more, and DO things during the day.
    Tossing and turning in insomnia is the mind's way of telling you that there are things still to be done. Your spirit will continue to deteriorate if you don't create/work, so do it when the urge arises, not at 1 AM.

    It is possible to actually sleep a restful 4 hours, but this takes a lot of adjusting to do, and usually requires a 30 minute energy boosting nap during the day.

    This is actually a way of living for some people, and/or professions that require strenuous hours, so it is not uncommon to see 4 hours of sleep.

    Although if you have the ability to sleep a good 7 hours, do so, if it is what your body requires.

    Early to bed... early to rise... makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.

    3-5 hours! O_O No wonder you feel tired! Dude, when you're tired, go get some sleep. At least 7 hours should do it.

    And if you can't help staying up late, at least give yourself a "sleep holiday". Try to go to bed few hours early once in a while and you will catch up on sleep and feel better. I usually stay up too late, like 12 to 1 in the morning (I get up at 630) but if I go to bed a hour or two earlier, I feel lot more rested and better.

    Sleep is very critical to health...if you get too little, you will feel tired and get sick more often. People have died from lack of sleep. Also, it is a killer on creativity.

    to reply seriously i really really suffer if i get less than 6 hours, 7 seems to be about right for ideal operation.

    its really alien to me that some people can stay up later and still be competant in the morning, everything i do is just substandard when im sleep 'deprived'

    usually about 6 hours here if I'm on schedule... though I have been known to go 2-3 days without sleeping at all and not feel tired, where other times I need 10+ hours to feel rested... oddest thing for me sleepwise was the 2 month period where I had a total of less than 100 hours of sleep over the 2 month period (yes - that's less than 2 hours a day).

    Haha the reason i dun want to go bed early because when i reach home from sch its already like 10-11 D: so i have to that spare time to cooldown and do some studies... if there is homework den oh gawd i have to stay up longer.. If i sleep early, i couldn't get up early as well and if i sleep early i cant do more self studies D: I dunno but i feel that in this years of school i should make best of time because after graduation i want to be able to reach industry standard @_@

    ill take the advise to sleep 6-7hrs a day from now on cause i feel that my work rate has slowed down tremendously =/
    Thanks guys
