In brief: Energy

Although we do not know exactly how sleep works for us it is essential to life and obviously has something to do with energy regeneration.
Failure to sleep would be lethal altthough, believe it or not, the record for complete absence of sleep is, if i remember correctly 10 days in a young man who bounced a basket ball the whole time to keep awake.
