How long can a person go without sleep?

After 3 days, they're considered legally insane. After 10 or so, they'll die or get severe brain damage.

11 days is the record (264 hours). Too long without sleep and you can suffer hallucinations, etc.

I remember something from GCSE Biology about sleep deprivation. If humans don't get REM sleep, it has a massive negative effect on the immune system + nervous system. Sleep also has some kind of effect upon cognitive functions although the reason for that are not 100% clear... best current hypothesis is that human require sleep to properly accumulate and apply what we learn. Kind of like how Windows needs a reboot after you install software.

Anyway point is, that in several Psychological case studies a person would be fine for around 52 hours (excluding basic signs of tiredness)... then reaction time starts dropping rapidly and cognitive ability also drops off. At about 72 hours there would be slow drop in a persons mental state participants would become increasingly aggressive and the metabolic rate drops (not sure about this). I really can't remember what happens after 96 hours.

As long as that person lives.

I mean, you never gave any conditions. You never said the person had to be healthy.

i think 10 days, my record is 3 and still had trouble sleeping

I have gone about 3 days before, but hell I was starting to see stuff and my brain was just not working at all, I wouldn't recommend over 2.
