  what about this option as certain members have already noted they like 
doing projects for long periods of time and just do not get upset about 
napping?
                                               Power Naps
Power naps are limited to less than 20 minutes. That way, one can get 
into stage 1 and stage 2 sleep but, by being woken up before 20 minutes 
have elapsed thus before stage 3 sleep, they are not drowsy and can work 
productively. This is a known entity in sleep medicine, utilized for 
staying alert for days at a time with unconsciousness only occurring for 
less than 20 minutes every 4 hours. I was thinking it would control the 
sleep issue if there is a sleep chamber that, by consensus, can be used 
for only <20 minutes every 4 hours by any one individual. There would be 
only 1 sleep chamber and no other sleeping, whether sitting up or lying 
down would be permitted. (I'm staying at a place where I have been 
registered and present for every over night in the last 5 to 6 months 
except for _one_ night last month I stayed to clean/socialize at 
Noisebridge and napped for two hours max) before going home at dawn.

Then, the discussion can turn to people who appear to be living there 
(and making it a pigsty).
