What is the longest you have gone without sleep?
No sleep (naps starts clock over). Like none in a row...

My record is 45 hours in a row (Las Vegas, was fun and delirious on a craps table--winning one too--at the 45th hour, like swore I saw a little green man trying to mess with my chips (yes, all legal substances)).

On a bad run of sleep now and got me to thinking...I cannot seem to think. Which made me look at OT board. Kidding.

Longest?

37 hours

Neglected some project for my minor and had to do a semester's worth of work in that amount of time.

Slept so long afterwards that I woke up with sleep paralysis

Approx two days. I was starting to hallucinate.

I've gone extended periods on very little sleep but even an hour or two makes a huge difference

Working two jobs (days at one and nights on the other) I would go 36 hours occasionally without sleep. That didn't last too long and seriously sucked.

I has severe pain from a back injury, they pumped me full of pain killers, narcotics, injections nothing stopped the pain. I was awake from a Tuesday morning until sometime Thursday when I finally passed out.

3 days in undergrad in a lab finishing a project with 3 other people. I fell asleep standing up on the train going back to my apartment once we were done. Once I got there, I slept for 23 straight hours.

due to the nature of my work, multiple circadian flips in a short time period, I do this occasionally, we actually have a "sleep class" at work as part of our recurrent training(on some training cycles,) as your sleep dep prolongs it supposedly has the same, measurable impairment as drinking alcohol

3 days - epic Tecmo Bowl tournament - think I was about 19 and it was before classes started - there was a lot of drinking and partying involved in between matches - I think there were maybe 20 or 30 of us involved

About 38 hours.

Was driving from CO to New Orleans for Thanksgiving which I think should be around 22 hours but hit an ice storm around Dallas area. Kept trying to head South to get out of ice but was hitting closed or backed up roads.

Needless to say I was spent by the time I got to NO.

Mine is from Vegas as well.

I crashed around 7pm after drinking all day and taking an edible. I woke up at midnight. I proceeded to head out to Freemont where I stayed until about 3am. Then I went to a strip club until God knows how long (daylight when I walked out). Went back to the Airbnb and woke up the rest of the crew. Went to brunch then to a sportsbook to watch college football all day. I went to a different strip club that night and got back around 4am. I think it ended up being around 29 hours.

Woke up Tuesday morning at 4:45 AM and went through to last night (Thursday) at 8:15 PM. So, 60ish hours? That was just with a little Modafinil and some coffee.

Back in my coke days, I'd wake up on Sunday and not go to bed until Friday night. But, again, that was with an ample coke supply.
