    Napoleon slept for 4 hours a day, and look at what he achieved. The basic rule of thumb is: (the more sleep you have the less stuff you can do)/(Level of tiredness)
    Hope that little formula helps you decide your optimum sleep allowance.

    8 hours is fine, but the specialists are reckoning that any more than 7 makes you die earlier! Don't ask me, just what I read! On average though, 6-8 hours per night (depending on how active your day has been) is adequate.

Cos I'm on study leave at the mo, Ive been going to bed around 11pm ish, and waking up about 9.30!! Although it's not normally this much, I do usually get at least 8 hours. I thought this was good?! Lol.

    And to answer the original question:

    I think 6-10 is reaonable

    I sleep in 4 hour stints (this is the ideal) Or multiples of four. I can function better on 4 hours than on 6. Odd I know!! :confused:

    I get anywhere from 6 to 9 hours sleep. I have the week off, so at the mo it's more like 9, but when I go back to college next week it'll slip back down again.
