You're having a hard time to stay awake, while people like me are having hard time sleeping. I don't think you should deprived yourself from sleeping. Maybe you have work a lot and your body and mind needs to recharge. DOn't over work yourself. Or maybe you have this sleeping disorder that is called narcolepsy (i am not sure with the spelling), a condition that is completely opposite with insomnia. But if you really insists waking up then they say that coffee helps.

I wish I could fall asleep. I spend half the night trying to just make myself tired. Even just laying there I can lay there for hours and not fall asleep. Think of this as a good thing for yourself. This way you can stay healthy being up all night is not healthy.

I find myself having that say problems or someties it is the oppitsite not being able to get to sleep. When it gets as bad as you are talking about I lay down for a few minutes to an hour and doze.But if that is not possible I will grab a enegy if I have one or a few cups of coffee or a Mt.Dew pop. I guess it is a way for my body to tell me I need a nap. Other times I can't get to sleep so I read and that usually does the trick after awhile. Or watch a really boring television show..lol You need to take care of yourself and when your body needs rest you better rest it is also a way that the body heals itself is through sleep. So rest up and take care.
