it seems to me that when you wake up in the middle of the night, your brain is groggy and isnt firing at full reasoning capacity. This would be a bad time to make decisions as you are unable to fully grasp the implications of each choice. You will end up choosing the most obvious, brazen, or easiest path to take, or just take a random swing at the decision and go back to bed, ignoring the nuances of any other choices.

It would be bad to make a snap decision in your sleep.  What the OP doesn't mention is that this should be a decision you've spent all day working on.  Then, when your body is idling, your brain will try to solve problems.   
   
When I was in college, I couldn't solve a calculus problem during a test, and my mind just couldn't give up not knowing the answer.  I couldn't do it all day, but at night, I dreamt about it and solved it in my dream.  I was so excited that it woke me up, at which point I wrote the problem out and found that what I did in my dream was the correct way to get the answer.  I thought it was pretty cool...until I realized I dreamt about solving math problems.

I know what you're talking about, and I'm positive it uses different parts of your brain then OP is referring to. I didn't type it up there, but I think the best time for decision making is either while you're asleep if it can work out like you suggest, or about an hour after waking up. Your brain should either be using its sub-conscience to work it out, or should be turned on to its fullest.
i think that makes sense...

No...this doesn't work. When you're a parent to an infant and you get up in the middle of the night,.

i'd go no country for old men style and flip a coin.

Oh flip a coin.
Often while the coin is in the air you will be hoping for one side or the other and that is your decision.

**rattara rolled a random image posted in comment #2782065 at Friendly ** I'm pretty sure I wouldn't remember the thing I couldn't decide on out of a dead sleep.

I tried, but I don't think "seagulls are like airplanes, but if the oxigen is not enough then they become clouds" can help me decide if its a good idea or not to put in sale my house.

I guess this is true.
In general, i work better and better and better as i am awake trough the night.
I basically nail tests and get A+'s, because i never slept trough the night, and just finished presentations right before i where supposed to be done with them.
I am not even nervous when i then present them, just ******* tired, like a zombie.
I guess it is motivation in itself to know that i will be able to sleep after it all, yeah.
