I stay up and party until my body feels like it needs sleep. Once I start yawning, feeling sore, or exhausted, I head back up to my room. I don't want to push myself too hard and be miserable the whole weekend because of sleep deprivation. x_x As long as I get anywhere from 4-6 hours, I'm good to go in most cases. :]

I will definitely be getting at least 6 hours of sleep but I do hope to go to a few room parties.

I'd like to at least run around to one since I've never been to one before
But it's not what Im there for so I'll probably just skip them

The few room parties I've been to have all been pretty lame, so unless people decide to become awesome, count me out of those. xP

I like my sleep xD I usually end up going to bed early morning anyway, and just will compensate by sleeping in later and trying not to miss anything good.

I need at least 6-8 hours or else I'm crap the next day. So I stay up late ... usually till around 3am and sleep in till the first panel (that I want to go to) starts ... waking up an hour before to get into cosplay.

So I choose sleep but I have fun staying out when I do ... I just can't push myself or else ACen would be awful for me x.x Probably helps that I don't go to room parties (I don't drink).

im not a real party type person..and i was actually surprised so many anime fans were. I kinda always thought most were like me.

they loved it..but were almost anti-social.

not getting on people bout it..just saying.

so when it comes to party all night long or sleep...i choose sleep..but then again i get more than enough and i stay up till bout 1 or 2 am

I need at least 9.5 hours of sleep on a normal basis, and 8 hours to stay sane. I like to stay up late (and go to the rave at ACEN), so I'll probably sleep from 2:00 AM to 10:00 AM there, and nap an hour during the day.

I hail from St. Louis where our largest convention is Archon, the biggest annual nerd/geek/freak/goth/metalhead/dork/gamer drinking party in a 500 mile radius, conveniently disguised as a general sci-fi/fantasy/gaming con. So Anime Central is a much lighter experience for me, but I still stay up all hours of the night/morning mostly just drinking and wandering about. That hotel & convention center are huge, but I know them like the back of my hand now. It's very nostalgic just to walk around aimlessly at 3 in the morning with a bottle of indistinguishable liquid (usually junmai ginjo-shu). Though it would be lovely if I could still break out my acoustic guitar in the lobby like I did for YEARS before ACEN staff decided to have a problem with it. =p

if i can get like 5 or so hours of sleep a night i'll be pretty okay, but i'm usually so pumped for the con i can get away with just a few hours of rest.

plus i find it a lot of fun to walk around the hotel during the early hours of the morning.

I stay up late Friday.

Sleep late Saturday morning.

And party for the next 24 hours straight.

I found it worked well at Ohayocon this year and I plan to do it again at ACen. Granted I'm still wiped out by Sunday...but hey, I have fun!

I intend on partying until the break of Sunday. If I don't indulge in every sin possible, I didn't indulge enough.

Sleep is just a cheep substitute for caffeine, I always say.

We have 7 people in our hotel room and as group leader I'm probably going to make a schedule of when everyone can use the room. Some of us, such as myself and Fayden, will only sleep like 4-5 hours a night. Where as a few other of our friends that just dont have the amazing stamina, will be assigned a longer period of time.

Dude, Alura... I don't think we're going to get that much X3. Since we're getting a room this year, I may show up at like... 7 am, take a nap (hour, 2 at most), a shower, maybe eat (pocky, ramen, ramune, sushi, something Asian...), and go back out. Maybe after the Soap Bubble I'll pass out for a few hours, but I'm sure we all will, haha.

I get about 6 hours a "night" plus some light napping when waiting, and there is always waiting.

Baggy undereyes? Pfft. That's what we have make-up for!

There's also another invention called Caffeine. Think you should try it Excel! Just kidding! XD

I stay up until I know I can't stay up anymore. Then I go to sleep for about two hours and go back out to party!

I don't have insomnia but on a normal day I can't sleep more than eight hours or I feel sick. I tend to sleep four or five. so on special occasions I can go with two hours.

Go to bed between 3 or 4 am and than wake up at 9 or 10 is a rule for me. And it will help too because I will be well rested and go on and party for rest of the day. ^,^

My general rule of thumb for ACEN is to sleep between the hours of 4am and 9am. That's all ya need!

I always get some sleep. :). If I don't, I'm irritable and cranky, and likely to fall asleep in the anime rooms. Which I don't want to do. :(. However, I always wait until I know there are no more panels I want to go to before I head back to my hotel room. And I NEVER sleep when I get there. XD. I just go there just to be in the room before it gets too late(I have to walk to my hotel).
