Whats the longest you’ve been without sleep?

What’s the longest you’ve been without sleep?

If your blog is about work, tell the story of an all-nighter you have pulled. If your blog is about an area of interest, tell a story of the last time you missed sleep, or got up extra early, to do something you enjoy.

  1. Olá a todos, nesses últimos dias, creio que mais de duas semanas fui dormir muito tarde, por ficar aqui escrevendo a matéria tirando suas dúvidas.
    Eu sempre fui de dormir cedo, mas desde que comecei a blogar, isso acabou.
    O meu blog, toma muito do meu tempo. Ainda mais que faço todo o serviço de casa, compras etc. Mas estou gostando dessa nova fase da minha vida.
    Abraços a todos!
    Mina!

  2. I know it was around 24 hours, give or take a couple, when I was flying back home from visiting Israel in 2010 or Istanbul in 2005 (I slept on one or two of the four legs total). I was up a long time on both trips. Normally, I don’t stay up that long, not anymore.

  3. This could be a good post. One project (in ’99 I think) had myself and one other developer working from Sunday afternoon straight through to the following Wednesday morning.

    However many hours that comes out to. *shudders*

  4. I fear I may be a big of a lightweight here…but the longest I have been without sleep is 48 hours and that was during my finals at law school. I had 7 finals in 10 days and 3 ran on consecutive days. I had to study…no option.

  5. I think for many of us, college was the reason we stayed up an ungodly amount of hours. For myself, while studying in college, I lost count after 24hrs. but I’d say it probably went somewhere close to 30hrs.

  6. I watched most of the rescue of the Chilean miners, which must have been half a day + one night + another half a day or so. That’s the longest I’ve been up recently.

    If I’m in a good flow and a job is almost done, I prefer to finish it even if it gets late. I send off the job and take it easy in the morning. Sometimes I actually get replies from other night owls. I always smile and nod understandingly when I see e-mails sent at 2:43AM.

  7. I guess it was probably 36 hours on my way to India. I had a stop in Dubai for 6 hours and was afraid to close my eyes as I might fall asleep and miss my next flight. Although I have been up late working on drawings for my blog too!

  8. In the past, when I worked on a publication that had a Monday deadline, I sometimes would sleep only a few hours Friday and Saturday nights and not at all Sunday night, (but that’s if you don’t count laying my head on my desk for a few minute nap). For fun I have lost sleep to watch meterorite showers, a comet, lunar eclipses and also for many sunrises. I’ve also drug various children out to look at either these phenomena or just the beautiful starry sky.

  9. A little over 24 hours. Do you know what happened then? I passed out. I mean PASSED OUT. As hard as I tried to keep going, my body wouldn’t let me. I was at its mercy!
