how long does it take to have the results of sleep study??

Depends: upon the process at the place doing the sleep study. Although the results can probably be determined by the following day, these results should be interpreted by the ordering physician. You should ask the doctor who ordered the test when to expect results, or schedule an appointment with the doctor to discuss the results.
