    I'll go for about 12 hours if I'm left alone.

    Someone told me that its impossible to sleep too much, if your body needs sleep, it will keep on sleeping :dunno:

    I had that problem and went to a sleep specialist. He ended up sending me to a sleep center to monitored my sleep for a night and found that I have neurological sleep apnea (idopathic hypersomnia) meaning my brain leaves REM sleep and goes into a semi-consious state several times an hour. This leads to daytime sleepiness.

    They prescribed me xyrem which is GHB.

    im usually 11-12 hours. Maybe it has something to do with us pushing our bodies harder then average people and needing that extra rest to recover?

    isnt sleep apnea when you stop breathing everything you get into REM and keep waking yourself up or something like that

    Apneas is when you stop breathing which can be obstructive or nuerologically related. The interuption causes you to come out of REM sleep and into a semi-concious state similar to right before/after you fall asleep.

    Thats not too out of the ordinary especially for young people. I'm assuming you like to party & drink to the wee hours of the morning. Everyone expieriences some form of insomnia at some point in their life, using good sleep hygiene can help break the habit.

    edit: not that this is easy to do or as simple as it sounds.

    On the weekends I will get 12-14 hours of sleep non stop if left alone, with about 8 hours sleep on the weekdays and I get daytime sleepyness as well.

    during the week I usually sleep anywhere from 6-10 hours a night but on weekends no matter what I can't sleep past 8am so I usually end up taking 2 or 3 naps during the day
