    Prefer around 8-8.5, or 9 to be safe, but tend to get closer to 7 on weekdays and 7-9 on weekends (can't always sleep in long enough if I'm up too late). Occasionally 10-11h if I'm really sleep deprived.

    As far as need, I notice a change in mood below 7h and changes in mental function below 6h, getting close to non-functional below 4-5h.

    Nine hours on the dot. I feel awful for at least an hour if I only get eight, and weird when I get much more than nine.

    Honestly, I need MORE than 8 hours of sleep. Even if I were well rested, I would want to give myself at least 9 hours.

    Well... you said in an ideal world. In an Idea-l world I wouldn't sleep. Sure there would be some drawbacks but think of all the life you can cram up in the extra hours

    Six hours is fine if I meditate twice a day for twenty minutes each time. Otherwise seven hours. So, meditation (for me, anyway) is a net waking-time saver.

    8-9 is best for me. On my trip, we went to bed shortly after sun set (9:30 pm or so - what else are you gonna do in the wilderness?) and woke up when we woke up, which was around 6:30. That was great.

    I wish I had one of these so I could pause the world and catch up on my sleep on demand

    I can't sleep for more than 4 or 5 hours at a time.
