Default Worse: getting no sleep, or waking after 1-2 hours?

Both are FTL, but which would you least want, if you have to make this choice?

Waking after 1-2 hours is way worse IMO. If I only get 1-2 hours of sleep it totally fcks me up. I can pull all nighters no problem.

Completely depends on where you wake up in your sleep cycle. Your sleep goes in cycles from very light sleeping to extremely deep sleeping every 90 minutes or so. The length of time spent at the extremes also changes the more cycles you get. The first 90 minutes of a typical 8 hr night contains the longest period of deep sleep and shorter periods of light sleep stages, with this shifting to the reverse throughout the night (aka you don't go into as much of a deep sleep and your light sleep stage is a lot longer).

So what this means if you can only sleep for less than 2hrs you are completely fvcked if you are woken up during your deep sleep stage, and being as it would be your first sleep stage of the night where the deep sleep stage is at it's longest and the light sleep stage at it's shortest is this usually what happens. The deep sleep stages occur roughly between the 25-50 minute mark and then again starting a little before the 2hour mark.

However, if you can time yourself to wake up during the light sleep stage, where you are almost woken up anyway, then it would always be better to take the sleep, from what I understand at least.

Cliffs: If you are pass out tired with only two hours to sleep then set your alarm for 90 minutes, as sleeping the entire two hours is going to catch you in the middle of the absolute worst sleep stage that a person can be woken up from.

It's scientifically proven that it's better to get even 1 hour of sleep rather than none at all.

Was awake at 3:45am and watched the clock for the next 2 hrs untill I had to get up. So lucky I slept early last night and still got about 5hrs in total.

I had hope for a killer 7 hrs of sleep. But you take what you can get.

I'd rather get at least a bit of sleep.

It's weird that you posted this because I had a weird night. I fell asleep for maybe an hour, and then when I woke up I was really ****in' out of it. I've mentioned I have epilepsy before and it felt like the "unreality" phases I get sometimes where I"m there but yet part of me is kind of outside of myself lol. And I was SUPER tired but every time I tried to fall back asleep it was like I was aware of myself trying ot leave my body and it was a bit unsettling. I've felt that plenty of times but for some reason it bothered me last night. I am pretty sure I have felt that way before though. After like another hour I finally crossed the threshold into sleep but it was so weird

Good 1-2 hours of sleep is better than nothing. (Just laying there trying to sleep for 1-2 hrs does nothing too)

Tried all night, next day I slept over 12 hours. lol

all nighter with mad coffee and energy drinks. then crash for 12 hrs.

glad those type of nights are a distant future now. but when i went to nyc for work, the first couple of nights i couldnt fall asleep until 2amPST/5am EST and had to work at 8am EST. Om top of that I worked 140 hrs in the 10 day I was there. Pretty shitty time there, but awesome to make up for it.

sleep in short amounts of time messes with my body clock too much. If I have to work I am asleep no later than midnight. I set my alarm for 7AM and I swear I wake up every morning between 6:50 and 6:59.

I cant take naps for this reason. I voted 1-2 hours < all nighter/no sleep.

I'd rather no sleep, than one to two hours.

I remember the last semester of my college career I was awake for 84 straight hours during finals week studying and completing papers/projects. When I finally did go to sleep, I only slept 5.5 hrs, lol.

Well, that's too bad. I kept loading up on coffee and energy drinks. By hour 83, my walk back to my place, my eyes were oscillating uncontrollably and I was hallucinating since hour 75.
