Cool tips on sleep hacks:
If you want to sleep less, esp for short periods of time - Modafinil.
I've been up for 2.5 days without a problem on it.

If you want to sleep more/better:
1) Pitch black room.
2) Orange (blue blocking glasses).  I use one in the specific SCT
orange color (info found here
Blue inhibits the production of melatonin, which is the key hormone
your body produces when it gets dark out.

This is the pair you want if you have glasses -
This is the pair you want if you dont -

I put them on a few hours before I go to bed.
Also, I have a blue light source to help me wake up in the morning.  I
still need to rig up a robotic arm or something to open the window in
the morning instead....

Hope this helps!
