Remember When All Night Was Fun?  
I can still remember when I slept less than 5 hours a night most nights in order to play gigs on weeknights when I had to work the next morning.

Now, going to bed at 06.30 (well, I went to bed at 05.30 but the pager went off again just after 06.00) means that I am still pretty groggy as late as 10.00 and couldn't possibly have gotten out of bed before then.

They say you need less sleep as you get older, and that may be the case on a night-to-night basis. However, I think that the ability to postpone or transfer sleep from one night to the next goes away as well. For instance, in my 4-hours-per-night phase I used to sleep until noon or 13.00 on a Saturday or Sunday without a problem. Now, unless I've been up all night, I wake up early and can't get back to sleep.
