    1 hour of deep sleep where you wont dream but body will get full rest is enough for all, but it never happens to all, it all depends on their daily activity and habits, eating habits etc., if you are too tired, you may get 1 hour deep sleep, normaly 5-8 hours sleep is necessary for everybody, but people won't sleep for 8 hours, they will sleep atleast 5-6 hours only. For normal functioning 5-6 hour sleep is necessary dail.y.

    I require at least 8 to function properly. 9 is perfect. 10 is too much. I do a lot of physical activity during the day and need energy.

    I'm an awful sleeper and can usually manage with 8 hours but if there is nothing to wake me in the morning i'll push it to 10. I'd pay a million dollars for a machine that let me sleep 4 hours a day.

    I've heard it said that it depends on how much sleep you expect to need. If you think you'll need 8 hours, any less will make you tired. I'd like to reprogram my mind to be happy with 5 hours but haven't succeeded yet

    as i learnt the sleep requirement depends on the age. when you are a child you sleep a lot initially 16-18 hours then it goes on decreasing with the age thats why you find old age people hardly sleep for 3-4 hours at a stretch .
    secondly it depends on the activities that you do. generally,if you are physically active then you require more sleep then those not active.
    thirdly the state of mind, people with depression and tension either increase or decrease the sleep hours depending on the body response.
    lastly if this question is to save time without loosing health. then SHAVASANA right before the sleep is the right answer . though, initially it will increase your sleep hrs but as krishubpages123 said SHAVASANA immediately lets you into the deep sleep and also increases the hrs of deep sleep so the rest of the hrs are saved after practicing it for a few days.
