What I think the OP means is that we get the most productive sleep between 9PM and 12AM. Those 3 hours are so productive, they are worth of 4-5 hours of sleep after the midnight. I'm too lazy to look for a study now, but that seems about right.

I have heard this a million times. While this may be generally true for the "average" person, it is not true for everyone. I have a sleep disorder "Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome" and for me it is not true.

I can go to bed at 8 pm and sleep soundly for 8 hours or longer and I feel terrible in the morning. But if I am allowed to follow my natural sleep pattern (which is staying up until 2 or 3 am and then sleeping until noon) that I feel FABULOUS! Truly, I am a completely different person when I don't have to get up early. It does not matter HOW MUCH SLEEP I GET, if I go to bed early and get up early I am crabby and dopey and pretty much incapable of thinking until at least noon.

People are so different, and there are so many variations that it is really hard to make a blanket statement and have it apply to everyone.

Since it's now after midnight; going to bed at 9pm would leave me sleeping restless for 3 hours each night.

I agree. Sometimes I have to force myself to go to sleep and I could not do it without my trusty Melatonin. I should be in bed right now but I can't bear the thought of it. LOL

6:30 am will be here before i know it *sigh*
