If I dont drink too much then I usually works for me. Too much for me at least and I get a little nauseous. I function pretty well on little sleep so a pot of coffee during a night is usually all i need.

Miles

Should also add that if you are not a big coffee drinker it may not take much. Just drink a cup when you start to feel tired a wait a while for the next.

Staying awake isn't that bad, staying productive is very hard. Yeah, you should probably drink a bit of coffee whenever you feel like sleeping is the #1 priority in your life. Anyway, good luck, I'm going to bed :)

Oh yeah I agree. It will screw everything up if you don't stay awake until bedtime Tuesday night. I have had sleeping problems since last Sunday. I actually tried to make it all day today to fix my biological clock, but fell asleep at 6 p.m.

Nah if you are busy enough with something I dont think that time is that bad. Though it is the time when I can get a bit delirious and its harder to focus.

When I get tired I always put a big dip of Skoal in. Keeps me awake for a couple more hours.

Once I have nothing more to do after pulling an all nigher I tend just give in and sleep. Though I have hit the bars quite a few times after doing one, which actually helps with sleep patters to get back late.

Coffee grounds, spoon, mouth. The taste will keep you awake until the caffeine kicks in.

You have obviously never worked installing phone systems.

We used to show up at 8am on Friday to do prep work, get the last minute details in order so that at 5pm on Friday we could unplug their current phone system and start moving to the new one. We'd work straight through. Usually we'd finish all the testing, getting the lines punched over, all the phones replaced, all the testing, etc. sometime around noon on Sunday. Go home, shower, pass out, then be back on the customer site at 5 or 6am on Monday to do some last minute testing and be there to support the users when they showed up.

Man, that got f**king old fast. There's no way I could still do that.

The worst part was the a**hole sales guys that would get all pissed off when I'd give the install team Tues and Wed off to recover.

Them: "We have to work, why aren't you making your guys work?"
Me: "Where were you a**holes at 3am on Sat? I mean other than drunk at a bar."

I was an owner and the sales guys totally flipped out when I made it a requirement that they purchase and deliver every meal while the install team was on site. Hehe. At least then THEY had to do something for all that money they made while my guys and I slaved.

It gets even worse when you consider the work is all so damn detailed. Imagine, it's hour 28 or so in your work day and you need to move about 200 of the wires on this:
