How much sleep did YOU get?

Hi,

I'm doing a power-point presentation on nationals for a computer class at school. The presentaion requires a graph, so I'm wondering how much (or little) did you all sleep during nats. Thank you for your help!

I'm sure this wont really matter for your poll, but for three of those 5-6 hour nights, I was under the stars! Our team rented several houses and we had a nice little pool with a screen canopy in the back. Anyway, sleeping outside when it was nice and warm with the moon shining nicely --- it's a good thing.

Ever see Full Metal Jacket?

Remember the scene where the guy gets smothered in a blanket and beaten up with socks in the middle of the night?

Yeah. Thats what happened when I tried to sleep.

Hmmm ... Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night I slept about 3 hours a night... Saturday night I slept for 11 hours and Sunday night was another 6 hours ... so during the competition I got about 3 hours of sleep per night. Average sleep per night for the whole trip was 5.2 hours

Ok, lets see here. The night efore we left on the plane I had no sleep. The night I got there I think that I got 4 hours of sleep. The next night I had no sleep from staying up and acting retarded all night, then the big night came next, five whole hours. Then two hours of sleep the night before we went to the theme parks, and then no sleep the night before we came back. I was taking alot of caffeine pills to stay awake, lol. So I averaged 1.8 hours of sleep each night. Now here is the really funny part. the day we came back, Monday, I went to bed right when I got home at 3:00, and didn't wake up until 7:00 the next morning, and I got more sleep then AI did the entire trip with 16 hours of sleep. My mom woke me up, and she's like Talon you have to get up. I'm like why? She says, because you need to go to school, and I was shocked. That was a good night for sleep. My friend kept complaining the whole trip because me and one other peson just wouldn't go to bed. One night, when I had no sleep whatsoever, I was like on a mental high, and we all put towels on our heads, and took pictures as the Talonban, it was hysterical. Those pictures still need developing, but I am sure that they are hilarious. I think I would be a good person to study for sleep habits. lol.

it's tough being the grown up

We had a bus taking us to the airport at 3:30 AM. So we had a little get together at school to wait for the bus starting the night before. Can you say "LAN party as school?" No one slept that night (except me because I am old). I followed a don't ask, don't tell policy about how much the team slept after that. But I got as much as I could while staying up late worrying about all the details of the trip.

Sleep..ahh the thought

Well lets see, Wed. Night I believe I got 4 hours, Thursday and Friday I got a little more, I thought I should since I was driving the robot, so around 5 or 6, then Saturday nite none of our team went to sleep because we left for the Orlando Airport at 5:00 AM Sunday, that was an interesting night, we did find out the timing of the Hotel's Sprinkler system thanks to the help of one of our engineers:

Team: "Whats that?!?, Ahhhh the sprinklers!"

Mike: "Don't worry they'll go off in a couple minutes, it happened last night too."

Survey Clarification?

Is that hours per night, or hours total for the week?

sleep??

Sleep equals shaving cream, and video tape. We tried for a few hours every night but even at that we slept with one eye open.

Oy

Well, being geeks to the extreme, we brought a Gamecube to Florida. Unfortunately the hotel attempted to prevent this by programming their TV and installing a modem on it to report back information. We subsequently hacked through the TV's settings and hooked up the Gamecube It worked pretty well once you got it started (the colors would shift and fade every 5 minutes or so), but getting it started was a pain... the TV would try to give you an "unusable signal" error and everything.. hehe

Anyway, the bad part is that the Gamecube was located in my room. Therefore we went to bed at around 2 AM each night, getting up at 6 or 7... I guess it's not that bad, in comparison to the other replies!
