> 8 hour sleep, is best to function. Sleep deprivation results in dopamine increase through out its time, then it decreases as time goes on.
> 12 hours sleep, sometimes is good, but takes long time also you feel more groggy the more hours you sleep. If sleep deprivated and then sleep for 15+ hours it usally helps, with restoring functions.

I discovered decades ago that if you wake up at your usual time - even if you must use an alarm, you can then go back to sleep for hours afterwards without feeling groggy. Sundays were always bad for me regarding mental energy and the ability to read. I figured out that my staying out until 2:00 AM on Saturday night and waking up at 10:30 AM really screwed me up. I didn't enjoy football as much. Since I learned about the existence of circadian rhythms and zeitgebers in college, including light exposure, it just made sense to me that I should reset my circadian rhythm on Sunday mornings. It was just an experiment. I was pleasantly surprised that it worked. I just had to make sure that I reached a state of full wakefullness. I found that I didn't have to stay awake for than more than 5 minutes.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
