Personally I'd like to get around 10 or so but I only get around 7 or 8 or sometimes even 5. I hate sleeping though, I'd much rather be doing something else and I'm pissed when I wake up late.
How about you?

I usually get around 7 hours of sleep, but I can get through the next day 100% on 5 hours.

Friday and Saturday: Approximately 10-11 hours  
Sunday thru Thursday: 6 hours

#5 Posted by Yummylee (22511 posts) -

I have no job, nor do I go to college so it fluctuates a lot.. sometimes I can handle with around 6-7 hours, while other times I'll fall prey to laying in bed for utmost of 13 hours >_>

How much I want: 8-9 hours 
How much I need to function for the day: 3-4 hours

#7 Posted by Everyones_A_Critic (6310 posts) -

On school nights I generally get around 6 hours, and that's what I need to function on a usual day. I can do five or even four, but on those days it's very difficult to even keep my head up during lectures (not that it's easy even when I get a full night's sleep).

#8 Posted by Vital (159 posts) -

Typically I get around 3-4 hours of sleep a night, which is sad seeing as I still go to school and work after school. I get by though.

My bare minimum is 4 hours. Any less and I don't even hear my alarm clock.

#11 Posted by Hourai (2795 posts) -

I only get around 3-4 hours of sleep at night but I also nap when I get home. Usually it's enough for me to function, but sometimes I get really exhausted and stay home to sleep. I'll probably do that tomorrow. 

#12 Posted by Skald (4370 posts) -

I'll say six. I really like sleeping.

#13 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

7-8 hours is what I want mostly. 
I get around 4-5 though but I can still get through the day without any problems. 

#14 Posted by RobotHamster (4177 posts) -

On average maybe 3 - 4 when I have to get up early the next day, but on weekends and days that I'm free I'll get 8 - 9.  

#15 Posted by Dedodido (235 posts) -

I've always been a bit odd when it comes to sleep, 8 is my absolute bare minimum to function the next day, my work at school used to really suffer if I got any less. I try to keep it at 9 though for me to be working at 100%. When I started uni I used to sleep for 12 hours, but then I realised that wasn't really healthy.

#16 Posted by Underachiever007 (2468 posts) -

5, usually.

#17 Posted by endless_void (703 posts) -

I go to school and have usually 7 hours of sleep but i prefer about 9-10. Honestly 9-10 seems like the sweet spot for me when it comes to sleeping. My sleep schedule gets messed up every weekend however, so it takes me some time every week to re-adjust.

#18 Posted by Fajita_Jim (1458 posts) -

I can go a few days sleeping just 4-5 hours a night, but it's not ideal and after two days of it I'm starting to feel it. I usually try for a solid 8 hours, and 10 if I have nowhere to go or nothing that needs doing.

#19 Posted by Mirado (1050 posts) -

4 is what I normally run on. My bare minimum seems to be 2, but at that point I feel pretty shitty the whole day even though I can function. Whenever I have a day off I'll sleep for about 12, but sometimes I get wrapped up in something and I don't sleep for two days. It's weird, but it works.

#21 Posted by FavoritoBandito (167 posts) -

1-3 before school days and around 10 on the weekend, I can't wait for a decent break

#22 Posted by BaneFireLord (2957 posts) -

I always aim for 8 at least. I can function perfectly well on 6 to 7, but I like sleeping.

#23 Posted by danimal_furry (1453 posts) -

I will sleep as long as I can get. To make a point, I will state my usual. I get around 6 hours (but sometimes 3 or 4) and I sleep till noon or later on Saturdays. Sundays I am up by 8. and then I start the cycle over. If I feel drained, I have been known to go to bed at 6 in the evening. However, I rarely feel drained, but I have noticed other physical ailments like my muscles giving out and me not being to concentrate as well.

#24 Posted by GlenTennis (3145 posts) -

As someone with sleep apnea, I need as much as I can get. I usually get around 8-10, though I can handle 6 if I have a fully functioning CPAP machine.

#25 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

i usually get around 8 hours. i wish i could stay up forever and not feel tired. i can't function if i don't get around that much of sleep.

#26 Posted by captain_clayman (3328 posts) -

lol 9 hours or else i fall asleep in class.  my classes are that boring.  i need to take honors classes, these classes are too sloooow because everyone in it doesnt care or is extremely unintelligent.

#27 Posted by Blu_Magic (2021 posts) -

I've gotten through an entire day of classes (from 8 to 3) on 2 hours of sleep once.  Never want to go through that again. Dozed off for like 10 minutes in one class & woke up to find drool over my face. Not a good look lol. 
 
 Bare minimum for me would be like 4-5, where I can function normally. 7 or 8 is optimal and 9+ is amazing.

#28 Posted by Mattxx (45 posts) -

8 is usually good for me, any less and I'm like a zombie.

#29 Posted by CL60 (16906 posts) -

5ish, and I'm good. 

#30 Posted by Redbullet685 (6083 posts) -

I usually only get 5-6 hours and I'm fine.

#32 Posted by Chris2KLee (2338 posts) -

6-8 is my regular I guess. I can hang for about half a day on 3 hours or less, but things will get fuzzy by the time the evening starts.

#33 Posted by JerichoBlyth (1044 posts) -

4-5 hours sleep normally. I'm a lazy cunt though.

#34 Posted by MikkaQ (10344 posts) -

I like to have a good 9 hours whenever possible, but it's never guaranteed. I can get by without too many ill effects at 5 hours.  At four hours it becomes obvious I haven't slept much. At three hours I stop making sense to other people. Two and below means I've stayed up all night, and I've fallen asleep on a bus or wherever I was travelling to. I also kinda experience some kind of survival-mode, where I get really energetic and kooky. But I still don't make a lot of sense to people.  
 
I remember a good photography class in high school once. I had stayed up all night that night, and when we were given the opportunity to use the dark room, I basically crawled under one of my friends' photo enlargers and slept while they worked. It was nice. Then people started joining me underneath the workstation, and we had an impromptu Beatles jam, due in part to my delirium. That's when we got caught for slacking.  
 
Man those were the days. 

#35 Posted by FiestaUnicorn (1577 posts) -

I usually get 7 or 8 but I can get by on 2.
#36 Posted by PerryVandell (2109 posts) -

Normally I try to get at least 7 on weeknights and somewhere around 9 or 10 on weekends. As for what I can get by on, I would say somewhere around 5 hours, although I'll be exhausted towards the end of the day. I have gone through an entire day after having an all-nighter without taking any naps, but at that point I might as well be a zombie.

#37 Posted by Aus_azn (2224 posts) -

I want 12 on an exceptional day (weekend). On a weekday, I like to have 8.
 
I get 6, regardless.

#38 Posted by CornBREDX (5965 posts) -

I only need 2 hours if I must for some reason but regularly I sleep 8 hours.

#39 Posted by UnrealDP (1221 posts) -

i just need 2 but no less becasuse after that i dont hear the alarm. Also i have a night job and am finishing up a second year of college so maybe im a special case here.
#40 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

I've gotten by on three, on one occasion. It's what inspired me to write my first rape analogy paragraph. I am not kidding.

#41 Posted by Gunner612 (4338 posts) -

Around 6 hours without coffee in the morning. 3-4 with coffee.

Basically this. If I have a couple days in a row of 4-5 hours of sleep, the fatigue will start to hit me bad and I will either sleep in a class or skip out on going to gym for the day.
#43 Posted by npeterson08 (502 posts) -

I need at least 7-8 if I don't want to nod off during class. Right around 10-11 hours ruins my entire day because I'll wake up feeling like a lazy shit, and I'll end up procrastinating the day away until I muster up the courage to feed and bathe myself. After this, I feel tired again so I usually end up going to bed earlier than normal.

#44 Posted by Jasta (2217 posts) -

About 6-7 hours usually, I can live on 4 though.

This, but about mid day I have to have a Coke to knock the edge off.
#46 Posted by SadPatrol (502 posts) -

I usually get about 9 or so. 

#47 Posted by Scrawnto (2465 posts) -

I've done 3, but it sucks. Any less, and it's better for me to just stay up for another day. I usually get 5 to 6 hours of sleep, but I function best with about 7 1/2. With that much sleep I don't need any caffeine to stay functional for the remaining 16 1/2 hours, though a cup of coffee still doesn't hurt.

#48 Posted by Bucketdeth (8048 posts) -

8 and a half is my best amount but I usually get around 7 1/2 to 8 hours.

#49 Posted by fishmicmuffin (1044 posts) -

I prefer to get 7, but I can make it through 2 days in a row on 5 hours a night. I'll usually crash on the third day of 5 hours or less, though. Might have to throw in a nap or two in the process as well. If I get 6 a night, then I can be fine for the entire week... but once the weekend rolls around I generally sleep more than I usually would if I had been getting 7 or more a night.

#50 Posted by d_breeze (226 posts) -

I usually get around 5 a night during the week (7-9 on friday nights), but I usually take two hour naps on a daily basis (except thursdays when I have class 11-8 or if I have office hours or something...) so I get enough sleep.
