How many hours of sleep do you need to function properly?

So jealous of those who can manage on just 4 hours of sleep. I need at least 7-8 or I can't function properly the rest of the day :(

  • I can manage 3 to 4 hours of sleep if I'm constantly moving, but when I only get that amount of sleep and I have to go to class the next day it sucks. As of right now, I am sick because I haven't been getting enough sleep and my body has been breaking down.

  • I can do with just 4 or 5 hours for a few days but after that I just stop being able to focus and get a horrible headache until I sleep for half a day :D

    I think 7 hours a night is enough, although I prefer 8 :)

  • I can't sit and focus on a lecture on less than 7 or 8, but if I'm working on something or moving around I can get by with as little as 4.

  • I manage on 3-4 and I'm 16, when I was younger I would sleep only a couple days a week.

  • I can function on like 4-5, but prefer to get a good solid 8-9 if I can. It really depends mainly on how your sleep cycles work, and which stage you're in when you wake up. Like sometimes I'll wake up to go pee after being in bed for 6 hours, and feel okay enough to stay awake, but I still have time left to sleep, so I tend to take advantage of it. Then when I wake up another 2-3 hours later, I'm way more tired than I would have been if I'd just stayed up, even though I got more sleep. It's because I'm interrupting a deeper stage of sleep when I wake up the second time [usually by alarm].
