    I wake up naturally after 9 hours, so I'd say that.

    Im 18 and for me not to feel all tired and sleepy i need at least 10 hours of good night sleep! i can sleep as long as 15-17 hours a day but the work i have to do to get em A levels done is inturpting my sleeping hours!!! in conclusion i sleep for about 8 hours, wake up in the morning feeling all tired and sleepy so wat i do ( which actually works) is actually a forgetten myth which is yes the old cold water in ur face gag!! i go and wash my face with cold water and it may take me about 5 mins so that it can make me feel all allert and active!! After that just go have a double expresso and ur all good!!!

    I don't really know how many hours of sleep I really need. I never get enough, so I'm always tired.

    Usually not in bed until the early hours of the morning, take a long time to get to sleep and have to get up at 6/7am.....by 4/5pm I feel like I need a nap, but have work to do. Then get sucked into tv, internet, seeing friends etc and before I know it, its gone midnight. The cycle continues; not enough time to sleep properly, but manage to waste the time between 9-11pm [when I should go to sleep] on pointless things.

    I prefer the night anyway. I feel more awake during it, even if I am tired. I think I'd do well on night shifts.


    I'd like around 8-9 hours. I usually get around 4-5, and can live off 2hrs or less; with caffeine.

    I do need a decnet amount. At uni I seem to have less sleep, so I'm always tired. And even the days where I have nothing, and I sleep in, I still feel tired.

    Probably about 8 hours to feel my best. But I know I don't get that now!
