The sleep one seems off, I'm pretty sure we know about the body and the repairs it does when we are asleep

Well, it does the repairing and all that while we're asleep because the body is busy using up energy on other things while we're awake. We'd do the same thing if we stayed awake all the time, just slower and less efficiently.

Sleep experiments are somewhat inconclusive as well; one experiment had a dude stay up for 5 days, and he was pretty messed up. He was having delusions, and all of his cognitive and motor functions were impaired. Yet, another fellow stayed up for weeks with no definitive side effects; beat the doctor monitoring him in 100 consecutive games of ping pong. Went to sleep, was perfectly fine the next day.

Weird how the body works.

Yea, but why do we need sleep to do that?

There are several theories as to why, but we don't know for sure.

Nope. We have no idea why we sleep. We know what happens when we are sleep and that's good to sleep and bad not to, but we still don't know why we do it.

Those happen while we are awake as well.

That's one of the things that happens.
Just like converting short term to long term memory
Allowing our bodies to rest
etc
All these things happen while we sleep, but we don't know if we sleep because of them, or if they just happen to do it then.
