This one time I did an all nighter, after about 36 hours, i.e. the following evening I was watching TV and I was kinda drifting off, could concentrate on the TV for even 5 mins.

Didn't even know what was going on! Anyway gotta go, gotta hand my peice of junk in.

Don't want to sound 'old & grumpy' guys but you really do need to sleep EVERY night, ( even if it's only for a couple of hours ) this is when your body repairs itself & you regain your much needed energy for playing GTA 1V etc .. !! you can become very ill if it goes on for too long ..... :)

What happens without sleep?

from Daily Mail Clip
Sleep is one of the most popular research topics in psychology, yet there are still few definitive answers about this mysterious daily period of inactivity.

Professor Chris Idzikowski, chairman of the Royal Society Of Medicine's Forum On Sleep and director of the Sleep Assessment And Advisory Service, says: 'I still don't think we really know why we need sleep.'
There are two theories. First, we sleep in order to conserve energy, because even though our brain activity remains high during sleep, our physical activity is kept at a minimum.
Body temperature is lowered by one to two degrees celsius when we sleep, so our metabolic rate consequently drops by 20pc.
Second, sleep is a chance for the brain to reorganise the memory and the body to repair itself.
There are two basic types of sleep: rapid eye movement (REM or 'dreaming') sleep and non-REM sleep, and during the night our brains follow cycles of sleep.
Each cycle begins with non-REM sleep: stages one, two, three and four, which are characterised by different patterns of brain waves. Then, these stages quickly reverse and end in REM sleep, which is the dreaming period.
Each of these complete cycles lasts between 90 and 100 minutes - but, as the night continues, there is generally less 'deep' sleep (non-REM stages three and four) and more dreaming (REM) sleep.
Our bodies behave differently during REM and non-REM sleep. During non-REM sleep, the heart rate lowers, breathing slows, muscles relax and blood flows more easily through the body. Melatonin, the sleep-inducing hormone, and growth and thyroid hormones are also released.
During REM sleep, there is an increase in brain activity and temperature, the eyes move rapidly, muscles twitch, and blood pressure and heart and breathing rates start showing rapid variations.
While many parts of the body can rest while we are awake but relaxing, some parts of the brain's cerebral cortex seem unable to do so.
Even when we lie relaxed but awake in a darkened and silent room, sections of the cerebrum stay in a state of 'quiet readiness', prepared to respond immediately. The only time these areas appear to rest is during deep sleep.
Interestingly, the symptoms we suffer when we're sleep-deprived seem to relate to the functions of the cerebral cortex - namely concentration, speech, memory, and flexible and inventive thinking.
Professor Idzikowski says: 'Concentration and memory are among the first functions to suffer when we're lacking sleep. Irritability increases and unintended sleep is the biggest danger.' James Maas, Professor of Psychology at Cornell University, New York, believes that many people are constantly running a two-hour sleep deficit. 'Just an extra hour or two causes huge rebounds in happiness, productivity and creativity,' he says.

October 2002, 24-year-old Kim Kyung-Jae, a resident of Kwangju, South Korea, died at a local Internet cafe (also referred to as "PC bang", pronounced "PC bahng") after a reported 86-hour gaming marathon.[4] Mr. Kim appears to be the first human being in history to die of video-game related exhaustion. According to several sources, Mr. Kim was playing NCSoft's video game Mu at the time

October 2002, 27-year-old Lien Wen-Chang of Taiwan dies after a reported 32-hour video game session, 10 days after Kim Kyung-Jae. Lien Wen-Chang was found on the bathroom floor of the Internet cafe where he was playing, bleeding from his nose and foaming at the mouth



August 2005, Mr Lee, a 28-year-old South Korean man, died of exhaustion in an Internet cafe after spending a solid 49 hours playing Starcraft, only 10 days after Kim Kyung-Jae's. A resident of Taegu, he seems to have collapsed after failing to eat or sleep during his marathon session. He died in hospital, of what was presumed to be a heart attack. He had been fired from his job the previous month for playing computer games when he should have been at work



You can die from playing too much GTA etc
