    Just a couple days. If I'm working on a piece of art or a story, I can stay up for a day or two.

    Headphones and a music player.

    I one time had a manic episode and stayed up for a week straight. I would not suggest that. You start to see things after a while because you brain wants you to sleep...

    I have stayed awake for over 30 hours before, the result of a 5 A.M. flight. My best friend and I spent about six hours in the airport largely watching TV on my laptop, and nearly falling asleep when our flight began boarding. By then dawn was breaking and all hope of sleeping went out the door for me (I proceeded to not get in bed until almost midnight. That remains the longest day of my life).

    Probably about 48 hours after weeks of summer going to bed at 5am. I needed to fix my sleep schedule, so stayed up for a loooong time so that I could go to bed at a respectable time and sleep in for a bit the day after and fix my sleep.

    Most college days I'm up at 6:30AM and off to bed at about 12:30AM. Why? I get my bus at 7 and get home around 12 hours later (3 hours a day commute) and stay up talking to online friends.

    Around 55 hour, it was a competition who
    could stay awake the longest among me and 2 friends.

    I won a retro videogame. (!)

    A little over 96 hours.

    Spent all that time binge-coding whilst listening to music.

    About 72 hours because I had SOOOOO MUCH energy!

    Eventually I was exhausted and I hallucinated a lot >_<

    Nowadays I almost never allow myself to stay up longer than 24 hours at a time

    ~26 hours at a friend's house. As long as I don't get bored I can stay up indefinitely, but once I run out of things to distresct me then I'm likely to pass out.

    I don't know exactly how long I was awake but it was definitely more than 24 hours. This happens every time I'm on a long airplane flight(s). I can't sleep anywhere except a bed.

    The longest single period would have been around 34 hours (stayed awake for parties on the final night of a competition and didn't sleep until I got on the plane home) and the longest period I've spent getting next to no sleep was a 3-day assignment binge where I took 20 minute naps every five or so hours.

    Heh. I've just spent the whole night studying. And guess what? It solved nothing. I'm so late with everything...

    I have not slept for about 2 days and 16 hours at one point. I don't even remember why, I just couldn't sleep too much energy. Then I dropped for 18 hours...

    about 36 hours. I felt wasted at the end, but still I was full of energy.

    I was traveling to Greece when I was younger and one time I stayed up 30 hours. I slept for 14 hours that day

    4 days, and it's honestly something I'm not proud of. I was so mentally unstable, and I still am but nothing even close to how I was then.

    20 hours is about the longest time I've been awake. Maybe it's 21, but that would be a stretch.
