    Why is it that the less sleep you get the less tired you are?

    Weird question and I'm wondering why it happens, but when you get a very small amount of sleep, why is it that you tend to be more awake in the morning? Pretty much I'm a random insomniac to some extent, some nights I sleep perfectly for 9 hours other times I will wake up (seriously) 40 times a night. But the weird thing is, alot of times I will be more tired after a straight 9 hours of sleep then after waking up 40 times, is there any specific reason for this?

    I do know that my sex drive goes to hell when my insomnia kicks in but I just can't figure out why you wouldn't be more tired and not less tired the less sleep you get.

    (also I'm talking about the day after you get a ****ty nights sleep, the lack of sleep catches up with you fast but I never understood why your so awake after sleeping crappy for a night)

    I remember reading somewhere that there are 90 minute cycles when you sleep. So if you wake up in the middle of this "cycle" you'll feel like crap. Dunno what it's worth though.

    I'm no expert but, It's probabaly because your bodies still awake. you never really put it in the sleeping trend. Of course this kind of works out differently in the long run but short term it's like never falling asleep in the first place.

    Know what I mean?

    Its prolly because most people wake up during REM (rapid eye movement) which is the height of your sleep and when you wake up during this time period you feel tired. Usually occurs between the 7th and 8th hour of sleep. I forget what it is, but I think the time most REM is over is around like 8 hours and 20 minutes or something like that.

    Well, If I sleep for like 1 hour, I'm still tired. But, if I wake up at 3:00 AM, I'm not really tired. But if I go back to sleep, and wake up at 7:00 AM, I'm like a zombie.

    It's really wierd.

    That describes what I'm talking about to.

    If I wake up at 3 am I feel like I could just get out of bed right then, but when my alarm goes off at 6:30 I have to lay there for 5 minutes telling myself that if I don't get out of bed I have to go running for missing football practice and crap lol.

    you are exactly right. And the key is to sleep in 3 hour intervals. I always use this technique and it always works. When I have to cram the night before for an exam, and it becomes apparent Im not going to get much sleep, I make sure I only get 3 hours of sleep, not more. Once I thought i knew better and I did 4.. what happened? I overslepped and my alarm didnt wake me... thankfully the lowest exam in that class gets dropped lol, but still... Two lessons learned, (#2 is get a friggin loud alarm clock)

    Or learn to make the sound drive you insane, I seriously have to turn off the commercials with alarm clocks because the sound is haunting to me, it wakes me up instantly because I seriously start breaking out in tears of pain because my tolerance for the sound is so low.

    Why is this? Who the hell knows, My sister has the exact same alarm as me but her room is two stories away from me, I seriously have to walk all the way up two stories into her closed doored room to turn off her alarm because I can't stand the sound.
