Your body is a very resilient thing. Any of its various functions can be altered if the need should arise.    
   
Let's say you go a week without food. During that week you'll probably feel pretty hungry during the first few days but after your body realizes that food isn't around, you'll notice that the hunger goes away.    
   
It's being suppressed. After the week is up, however, and you eat again, you'll feel more hungry than you've ever felt. Why? The suppression is gone because your body has food again and doesn't have to do it anymore. This is genetic and goes back to a time when food was harder to come by.   
   
The need to sleep can be suppressed in much the same way. Losing sleep is not ideal obviously, but if there's a time when you simply cannot sleep, you bet your ass your body can cope with that.    
   
This too is genetic and goes back to a time when we were hunted and may not have been unable to sleep when we wanted. Same with hunger though, once you are actually asleep, your body wants to stay asleep.   
   
This is why it's easier to stay up until 6 AM than it is to wake up at 6 AM.

An object that is at rest will stay at rest unless an external force acts upon it.   
An object that is in motion will not change its velocity unless an external force acts upon it.

An object that is at rest will stay at rest unless an external force acts upon it.

Me and my buddy once wanted to test if we could last two days awake. Lots of energy drinks and coffee were consumed. We even strolled through my town wearing nothing but t-shirts, boxers and sandals. It was like 4 in the morning and it was summer, sun was shining and there were pretty much no people outside at that time, so it was pretty awesome. We did last two days alright, we even went over the deadline by 12 hours. But after that, **** got real weird. My friend had already left to his home, and I was sitting in the living room, staring at the TV, which wasn't on. For 10 minutes, I swear, I thought it was on and that I was watching "The Bold and the Beautiful". After I woke up from that 'trance' and realized I had just stared at the black screen of the TV for 10 straight minutes, I decided enough is enough and just went to sleep and slept for about 22 hours. It was... An interesting experience, but not something I want to repeat. Ever again.

Almost completely unrelated, does anyone know what Ninfia means or is it like a character from a show? For some reason lately I've been seeing that word/name everywhere lately.

Morning shift master race reporting in.

Started work at 5 AM at the golf course all summer. Wish I could've slept until six.

probably because you've only had a few minutes of sleep??

So that's why they call it sleep inertia...
