We were always told to stand up in the back. I had to do that a lot since the Military has this habit of offering some great educational events with some REALLY boring speeches!
sip some liquid while attending a long lecture. better yet, caffeine might do the trick.
If you have a notepad, you can always jot down parts of the lecture or some idea for new hubs. I have a horrible time sitting still and listening to someone speak - even if it is very interesting and entertaining. I almost always write, or take notes to keep myself awake and not snoring.
Sip an ice cold drink to so you can stay awake.
I play Sudoku or doodle...it keeps my mind active and I can listen at the same time.
My first thought, though many others may have already mentioned it, would be caffeine. Beyond that, doodling, making a list of things to do, things you dream of doing, or putting earphones in your ear with an iPod if you don't want to listen or take notes are other ideas. Or you could just avoid the lecture completely. I like that one the best.
Like Cat R, we had to stand up in the back of the room if we were sleepy during a class. But if you are tired enough, you can doze while standing up!
Try snacking on protein (i.e., bits of cheese) - sugar will just give you a quick rush. Sipping on ice water as someone else suggested is a good idea too.
Drink coffee, wash your face, throw nuts at the speaker, that might do the trick and/or provide few laughs!!
Brain food. Every time I have a test or a lecture to go to, I make sure that I have chocolates with me or even coffee.

Other Hubbers worry about hubscores or follower counts or featured/unfeatured. For me, it all comes down to one sordid number.What's so magic about $12.50?$12.50 / week = $50 in 28 days, or an average of about $1.80 a day. That's how much you need to reach Hubpages' minimum payout threshold every...
