Wound healing: Here is some general information on wound healing and sleep http://www.healthguidance.org/entry/16991/1/Wound-Healing-Process.html It may depend whether you've been sleep deprived or not and even then doesnt necessarily mean the graft has failed. I recommend contacting your surgeon or physiotherapist for an assessment (or one licensed in your area) if there are these concerns. Good luck.

What?: Sleeping too early or late would have no affect on the healing of your acl. If you feel like your knee is still "slipping" despite your acl reconstruction, then make sure your surgeon is aware and make sure you are following their restrictions and postop protocol.
