Around 35hrs+. I had to work til 10pm one night and go back in the next morning at 5am. Being young, I figured it would be better to just stay awake all night and go to work the next day instead of only getting 4-5hrs of sleep. I felt like hell the next day.

I know! I am the crankiest person on the planet with insufficient sleep. (Well cranky in relationship to my normal personality).

I find that if I can only get 4 hours or less, it is just better to stay up.

Same, actually, anything below 5 hours and I feel a bit groggy the day after.

Very rare for me to go without at least 8 hours of sleep. Maybe a few times it was less than 24 hours.

My longest is 52 hours without sleep. I took melatonin as a supplement and that finally helped me. I am a frequent traveler so I was searching for a quick solution.
