    On weekdays, I go to bed around 11pm and wake up and 6:34am, so that's around 6.5 hours. On the weekends, I go to bed closer to midnight and wake up around 9am. So that's around 9 hours.

    Depends when I go to sleep. I always wake up at 10:30am no matter if I go to sleep at 1 or 4am.
    On Sundays I just get up when I feel like it. Can rarely manage more than 8 hours though - I'll just have a headache all day then.

    After years of awful insomnia where I got about 1-3 hours per night if I was lucky, now I get about 7-8 on average. On the weekends sometimes 9-10. :eek: I think I'm making up for it now or something.

    I get about 5 if I'm lucky, but I'm fully nocturnal now.
    Can't sleep until 10/11am, then up when my girlfriend comes home from work.

    About six-and-a-half hours on average, I reckon.

    Hmm, no one at the extreme ends of the poll yet?

    I thought it unlikely that someone would sleep less than 3 hours (I think you'd have a hard time functioning) but figured some lazy MacRumors member out there sleeps for 10 hours a night!

    :p

    during the week for school i go to bed around 10pm and wake up at 6am, so that's 8 hours.
    weekends i usually go to bed around midnight or an hour before/after, and wake up abouttt 9am, so that's usually about 9 hours.

    Between 7 and 8 hours of sleep. Any more and I have headaches and balance issues, any less and I have horrible headaches and burning eye pain.

    I wake up at 7 most mornings and go to sleep between 11-12


    Edit: Not me but, my grandmother sleeps 4 hours tops and has been doing so for years.

    I'd say about 8. I usually sleep pretty well.. actually it kind of comes and goes. I'll go weeks sleeping well and then a week or so not getting back at all. I'm a morning person and do better being in bed before 10 and up before 7.. doesn't always work like that, but eh.

    I hate those nights where you don't get into a deep sleep, you just 'sleep' to pass time and don't wake up feeling any less tired.

    Between 5-7 hours, but only if I take a sleeping pill. If not, usually 4 hours :( I generally have no problem falling asleep, but I wake after a few hours, brood about the fact that I'm awake, yet again, and then drift off for an hour or so once I see sunrise.

    The poll is kind of flawed for me since I typically get 7 to 8 hours of sleep....which overlaps two of the options.

    If I get less than 7 hours of sleep, I feel like my brain doesn't function properly. I can't think as clearly and as well. 8 is ideal as I feel normal and rested with that. If I slept more than 10 hours, I would feel groggy.

    Monday through Friday, I get at least 7 hours of sleep. Sometimes less if I'm working on stuff and have no choice but to stay up later. On the weekend, I almost always get at least 8 hours. If I stay up really late, I'll just sleep later to get the full 8 hours. Unlike many other people, I thankfully wake up based on when I get my full 8 hours of sleep, not the time of day.

    Actually I sleep from 1-2 A.M. until 7:00 A.M., but, always sleep at the afternoon (2-3 hours tough).

    I have chronic insomnia so sometimes I get 3 hours or maybe even an hour, and sometimes I get a full nights rest around 8+ hours, but thats only when I take my sleeping pills or take my "herbal" supplement to help me sleep.

    I'll sleep between 9 and 10 hours a night. Plus 2 or so hours when I get home from work, sometimes. Weekends I can sleep 18 - 20 hours a day depending upon how I feel.

    Currently from 5-7 hours. Go to sleep usually between 11:30-12:30, get up around 6.

    That's about to change with the impending arrival of our third daughter. The other kids are up by 7:30 at the latest (usually) even on weekends but at least on weekends I can sleep until they come into our room. so I might get a full 7 hours on a weekend day.

    Coffee is my faithful morning companion.

    Right around 7 hours on weekdays. I'm usually in bed by midnight and up a little after 7 AM.

    It depends on a few factors. On a normal day I get about 7-8 hours (1am 'till about 7:30 - 8am). If I'm writing then it might be something like 4am 'till 8am. If I've got a lot of work on then I might pull an all nighter.

    Norm is 7-8, though.
