I hear different answers from everyone.

For me I always say 6hours is safe. Less than that, and I won't do crap effectively.

What about you?

It depends.

When I am at work I will get up at 5am but wont actually go to bed until midnight (and sleep sometime after that). Not sure why but I just find it hard to sleep.
If I am on night shift I will get to bed around 8am and up by 1pm.

When I am off work I can sleep for over 10 hours as I think I must be catching up for my lack of sleep when at work.

Even a few hours of sleep is better than no sleep at all if someone is that busy. I need at least six hours to make it through a day without getting tired, though.

Minimum 4 hours at night to function normally after waking up. 6 hours is the optimum.
I get very sleepy around 4 pm, so one more hour of sleep until 5 pm

During holidays I like to stay up until 2 or 3 am, and sleep until 9 am. It's my gaming time. Wife won't disturb lol.

In a past life when I was young and fairly healthy I regularly would get ~5-6 hours of sleep for most of the week and try to get a nice solid 8 hours when I had a day off. I didn't really have any problems with performance that way either. Now days it's a totally different story..... :p
