    I've been up for 12 hours on four hours of sleep. (I have sleep issues nowadays.) I'm sleepy and exhausted, but I'm about to give a lecture on college-level mathematics for two hours. Coffee hasn't been very effective so far.

    Wish me luck. I'll report back afterward with the results... if I don't pass out. :D

    Are you working while sleepy or sleepy while working?

    For me, that tiredness always made me feel about on par with being drunk...

    The brain fog is uncomfortable, but I do become rather good natured and silly once that complete exhaustion kicks in. Never had to give a lecture with all that, though.

    Hope everything goes as you wish it to!

    Working while sleepy, since the sleepiness is always the default, background state. :p

    Thanks for the kind wishes!

    My throat is sore from speaking for 140 minutes on end (the material was long enough to require more time), but the feedback for the lecture was excellent across the board.

    The sleepiness lost!

    4 and a half hours sleep is about my norm. So I think the OP just needs to toughen up. Probably part of the younger generation...
