    Not yet but close to it a couple of times.

    If everything is going well, I don't seem to get very tired when working on my sites, and if everything is going well, I'm afraid to stop for fear of breaking my good luck streak.

    If my computer, my graphics programs, etc., are all working well together I try to keep plugging along for as long as the ideas keep coming. I've found sometimes even taking a short break invites trouble...

    I get tired quickly when new ideas aren't forthcoming, or when my computer acts up.

    I have a big TV right next to my computer desk and every now and then i'll just spin my chair a little bit and take a lil TV break. I have dozed off and one time fell out of my chair doing this.

    A few times (doing affiliate stuff--not waiting for stats!).

    But I do it more playing video games. I know I've played the same game way too much when I can win a battle while sleeping in my chair! Whether that shows my need for sleep or the lack of the computer AI having any sense is debatable...probably a bit of both.

    I fell asleep at the computer once while waiting to find out how Trust got his frozen pizza out of his self-cleaning oven.

    With my caffeine consumption not likely to happen. But I will toddle off to the bed if I'm feeling that tired. I have a paranoid fear of drooling on the kb and giving myself an electrical shock.

    ARRGG! Sleeping caused my laptop to crash! I fell asleep on the couch and somehow the laptop managed to take a mighty tumble. The hard drive hasn't been quite the same, since.

    I used to when I got home from working graveyard at Safeway, Would get home at 8 am and fall asleep on my pc for about an hour then would wake up and move to the bed and fall asleep for 12 hours sometimes only 6 hours too. But Not anymore it's so nice I can actually think now!

    I fell asleep on an advertiser once that wanted me to put a link on my site. I had just pulled an all nighter because I wanted to get something finished. The phone rang and I thought it was my brother so I picked it up and it was this person instead. So being the nice guy that I am I pretended to listen and just give a "uh-huh" every now and then...

    There I hear "Hello Sir?"

    "Yes, I am still here..."

    "Ok, just making sure because you sounded like you were snoring for a second..."

    OOPS!

    This actually used to happen to me often. I would come home frome working graveyard at my regular job and try to get something done on my web sites. Almost always fatal for me, the same person who watches turns the TV on while in bed so that I will fall asleep.

    Now that I've joined the ranks of the unemployed, it never happens anymore, and I have lots more time for working on my web sites. I think I could get used to this.

    More than once and it was not a pretty site.

    It is never too late to be what you might have been.

    I have never passed out working on my site, but I have passed out when it counted.

    Haven't fallen asleep working on affiliate sites yet, but thoughts of turfing the computer out the window when it freezes up happen daily.
