    About a week. It is a bad feeling. Your heart rate goes out of normal. I had to go to the hospital to have my sleep monitor by the Doctors. Then, I had to stay over a few nights to take some medications. I was with sleeping pills for a few years. First,  my medicine was strong . Then, slowly and gradually the Doctors lower down to nothing. I have no problem with my sleep. Thanks God. I can nap during the day, and at night go to sleep with no help of sleeping pills. I try to eat right, and I exercise every day.

    What a relative wimp I am. I barely made over 25 hours before I passed out. I did not awaken for 13 hours and was in deep undercover (delta wave length) sleep until I awakened.
    On the Yang of this particular Ying, I slept quite deeply for a month while comatose. Yet even that is a relative wimp-out compared to many comatose experiences...

    48 hours a few times.  Basically I work  night shift and there are a few times after I get home I can't sleep  so i decide not to fight it and settle down with a book and then go to work with a large cup of coffee so I don't fall asleep when I am not supposed to.  Then when I go to bed six hours of sleep and I am like new.  Some times I am dragging through my shift, other times I am fine.

    I think there was one time in military where I went 72 hours part of a training program but we were allowed to have a 20 minute power nap.

    Back in the old days when I was young and playing diablo 2 lord of destruction I could go two to three days without sleep, mostly from drinking so much mountain dew LOL!
