The smallest documented amount of sleep that anyone needed was an old lady in England who needed 15 minutes per day. (Factoid out of a book on sleep I read a few years ago.)

More facts.

Most people if given the chance will sleep more than 8.

The average soldier is able to function 48 hours straight in an emergency if they are well-rested.

The average soldier can train themselves to go on 6 hours of sleep a night. Their self-reported estimate is that they are functioning normally. The wives of the married ones say that the soldier is a total wreck. Performance on a variety of ability and alertness tests suggests that she is right.

If you are overweight, have a loud snore, and feel tired all of the time, you probably have sleep apnea. Literally in the middle of the night when you relax you cannot breathe, and the nightly struggle for oxygen causes the snore, and prevents you from getting a solid rest. This is a medical condition and you should see a doctor, but be warned that many doctors are unaware of sleep apnea, so find a doctor who knows what it is.
