Like most people...5 to 6 hours a night. I agree with Mitty, though. You really should get 8 hours a night. At work, when I do get the odd 8 hour night, I am so much more aware and active. You wouldn't think an extra hour or two would make so much of a difference, but it does.

I usually get around six hours during the weekd. I'd like more, but I have to get up by seven for class and I'm a night owl who can't go to bed until midnight at the earliest. Besides, late at night is when I do my best work, or, if I don't have any papers to write, when I do most of my critical listening, as that's when my audio system sounds the best. On weekends I go to bed later and sleep into the late morning or early afternoon. This is usually 10 or more hours of sleep, and I feel well rested. Once in a while I'll take naps during the week before afternoon or evening classes. Sometimes I feel rested after these, but sometimes I feel more tired!

8 hours of sleep, 8 more hours to wake the hell up, and another 8 hours of wishing it was bedtime again.

On a normal weekday, about 7.5 hours.
On the weekend, somewhere around 9 hours.

Not much after drinking about seven to ten cups per day of my own mud thick teeth clattering premium Columbian blend of coffee!

I usually get by on 6-7 hours of sleep, but sometimes it's 5-6 hours. But I will say that I don't have too much problem getting to sleep, like some of my friends who are in bed for 7-8 hours, but don't get the nice REM sleep that I know I'm getting. :)

12 hours on the weekends.

For those of you who have problems sleeping, read Stephen King's "Insomnia". It won't help you sleep but it will give you something to do while you're awake. Excellent book if you like SK.

I'm one of those people who really likes to stay up late, and sleep late too. However, my job doesn't allow that luxury, which means I end up depriving myself of precious sleep (like right now! 12:33 am and I should be asleep). So, I usually wind up with 5 to 6 hours per night, and a little more on the weekend, when I try to recharge the batteries.

Scott,
I think I'm much like you in this respect.
Now did you notice something weird... People who go to bed say 10:30 pm and get up at 7.00 am, are generally considered more alert, eager and to the point than someone who goes to sleep at 2:30 am and wakes up at 9 o'clock in the morning - who is often called a long-sleeper. And yet the latter takes only six and a half hour, while the first type sleeps 8 and a half per 24 hours!
Here's a reassuring

fact: the great Napoleon usually slept only 4 hours during his campains (from very late at night until early rise in the morning).
