Homework keeps me upppppp.. allll night. Usually.

What helps is getting up every so and so minutes and just walk around, get a breather. Also do some exercises. You will feel surprisingly more alert and awake.

If I'm watching anime.. it's because, yeah, I get too into what I'm watching and just don't have the willpower to stop. >_>

Hmm... depends on your willpower. Sometimes, I watch an anime series non-stop that I ended up staying up late until 4am D: (that's on the weekends). Sometimes, I'd be playing a game and I want to know what happens so staying up late satisfies my curiosity. Sometimes, my parents are out and I gotta pick them up late so they make me stay up late, lol... yeah... As long as you have the willpower to stay up late. But uh, waking up early and sleeping late is not a good thing especially if you're waking up at 5am >_<

^ This.

I have problems sleeping before 2:00am let alone 9:30pm. Seriously. I'd be more than happy to change my sleeping schedule with yours.

I'm an owl. I have no problems staying up late. It just happens. Instead I find it difficult to go to sleep before midnight and to wake up as early as most people think fit. I envy all those early birds... And thus I really hate morning shifts.

Really easy. I've always been a night owl. The more you do it the more you adapt to it. Right now I can stay up till 5am on weekdays and live off 2 hours sleep without a problem (I have to wake up at 7am). I don't even get bags under my eyes. It feels like I've gotten a massive increase of energy.

i don't much anymore because i have more important things to do than stay up all night and then sleep through the day, such as a job. but when i did/do, i always have something to occupy myself with. it's pointless staying up late just for the sake of it.

:O I wake up at 6 and goto sleep around 10-12:30

My concentration's amazing I guess. I'd be extremely tired, but I don't like to stop doing stuff in the middle, so I generally surf the web until I'm satisfied and then I'd goto sleep.

lucozade and determination. also i find it harder to fall asleep if you're sitting as opposed to lying down (i don't know if it's the same for anyone else though).

Used to wake up at 4am for my job, i know how it is unforunately, hard when you get into that sleep pattern but want to stay up late when you get the chance. Nothing really seemed to help keep me up. Happy I don't have that same work schedule nowadays though :)

I wouldn't dare attempt to pull and all nighter anymore because of my lifestyle but when I did it was very random. Most of the time when I actually tried I would end up going only to about 3 or 4. There were a couple times though when I was able to stay up without ever getting tired. Don't know what caused the difference.

Which can be obtained by hiring a motivational speaker.
Therefore money can buy willpower.

Stay on the damned computer. Usually I slept late or take nap during the day so it's no problem to stay up late.

I can't sit in a comfortable chair or lay in bed doing homework if I want to stay up late. Eating never helps me either because it makes me drowsy and reading is usually an instant knockout if it's really late. Other than that, I don't usually have trouble staying up late.

I think it depends on your lifestyle. If you have to get up that early your body is hardly gonna want to stay up much later than it does. I work mixed shifts so I can stop up til whenever and risk being sleepy one day and not so much another. But my body kinda rejects sleep early anyway, I feel like I'm missing out on something even when I'm really not. Well, that and I like energy drinks.

But in all honesty you must be tonnes healthier than any of us anti-sleep folk so I'd stick to how you are. You still get loads of hours out of the day, just different ones.

Uh, I just stay up late. I'm one of those who needs little sleep; so it's like 23/24 -> 6/7 for me ;P

But, uh, if I want to stay up extra late, a single night or two I just stuck up on Coke or something else with caffeine, make sure split that out across the night, and accompany it with a few glasses of water and a means of fresh air (like a fan). That helps.

A single late night or two is easy to carry through, but don't stay up late on a regular habit; you'll ruin yourself then ;P So make sure you get to bed early enough to get up in the morning and still having gotten enough sleep for 5.30-6 I'd recommend 22.00 as a bedtime for most people.

I don't use caffeine.
But sth like 2-4 hours sleep in the afternoon and sth that u love doing on the PC can do a miracle. It can make u an insomniac and you can stay up, up to 8am (or more) xD - At least works with me xD

The Loud music from the neighbours can do the trick too xD (it must have bass - then earplugs don't work xD )

I completely switched my wake/sleep times around. I now wake 1-2 am everyday without an alarm. And I force myself to sleep around 5-6 am at night (otherwise id never fall asleep). This happened during skool holidays.

Same with me.

And that's the only time period I feel like watching anime or working on some projects is any good and worth doing. I should probably push those two back to the evening and the afternoon, but then it would feel strange since I've been living like that for sooo long now. It's around 4-6 hours of sleeping time a day and I rarely ever use caffeine. I have no idea have it turned out that bad, tough. I'm gonna die young, probably.
