    Thread title says it all. Basically, I made this thread because I lasted 28 hours yesterday and I was wondering how long you guys can last.

    I went about 36 hours yesterday and the day before. Need to fix my sleeping schedule in time for school.

    Pretty sure I stayed up at least 48 hours one time.

    Felt absolutely horrible the next day.

    Two and a half days. The first one and a half days was due to being on call at my workplace (a hospital). Was sleep deprived all throughout the second day due to noise from my neighbors' house, which was being renovated.

    If I can make it through one night I can generally last close to 48. Making it through that first one is the hard part though

    Back in my college days some of us guys in the dorm had a bet to see who could go the longest. I won, easily. Most of the other guys barely made it 36 hours. I went 5 days. Of course, I was all screwed if afterwards. I crashed for almost 24 hours straight.

    Man was I dumb. $50 was all it took to screw myself up for weeks...

    I don't fall asleep well so I'll go until I collapse and I can remember being up for at least 48 hours. On one occasion I drove to Va, tried to sleep, couldn't b/c of the Ice Storm we never got, and 15 hours later was on the road for another 12. Got home and slept that night. Hoo Boy.

    I miss being an adolescent, and having that first "all-nighter" experience. Good times.

    The first time I spent an entire night awake was way back when I was 8, and I believe I was awake for around abouts 29 hours. I then promptly slept off 9 of them.

    the record, FYI, is 11 days (as a medical experiment.)
    i don't think you should try to beat that.
    the doctors had to put the guy down because after 11 days, he was so fried, he lost all sense of his identity.

    there's yer trivia for the day.

    for me, i went 4 days, all at work.
    i had a job where i could not leave until relieved, and people kept calling in sick on me.
    i turned off my phone for 2 days and drank NyQuil to recover.

    About 36 hours, I'd say. This was earlier this summer. It was boring as hell.

    The longest I remember was roughly 48 hours before I went to bed. I hated how I felt the next day I woke up.

    2 Days at most I can remember.

    It was at the midnight release of Halo 3 at the time.
