Usually 11 or 12. But I've actually failed to sleep on a few occasions (forgot to take meds those nights).

What would the answer be if you've fallen asleep at every possible hour of the day, including none at all?
I don't expect to beat 4 days without sleep (which I've done more than once), nor would I want to try.

I was once awake till around 8:30 PM after staying up all night the previous night. I was riding Greyhound buses home from Chicago. It's difficult for me to fall asleep on moving vehicles.
I like turtles.
as a kid, i thought staying up late and reaching for 24hrs was awesome. now i just realized it sucks because you get tired most of the time. but the biggest 3 recent times I've went past 24hrs is
1. junior year in high school, stayed up till about 5:40 am and woke up at 6am to get to school on time. i had a weaving project i worked on for literally 12 hrs straight with a possible bathroom break in between.
2. my friends and I watched all 6 star wars movies plus genndy tartakovsky's animated series in one sitting in sequential order. marathon finished at about 9 or 930 am but i stayed up so late i went beyond being tired and didn't go to sleep afterward until that night shortly before midnight. i think we started at about 6pm the previous day.
3. the day super smash bros. brawl came out i played it for 12hrs 47 minutes straight. i started out on multiplayer with some friends, then i beat subspace emissary in that one sitting, then i went to start unlocking more stuff. the only reason i stopped was because i fell asleep playing the game. when I woke up i was at the results screen and I came in last. The only other game I ever fell asleep playing was the original super smash bros. game on N64 when my friends and I started to play 99 stock at like 5am, so we were already pretty tired. i never owned a gamecube so melee never had the opportunity. But back to brawl, I slept for about 3 hrs and when I woke up, I went right back to playing it for about another 4 hrs. God i love that game.
Sayonora, until next time
Most nights, the latest I'm up is around 2am. I have pulled all nighters a few times, and those usually bite you in the ass in the end.

3 days at various gaming conventions. It helps having loud obnoxious fat guys trying to hit on you. It just makes STAYING AWAKE FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY that much more of a must

I'm usually up until about 2AM every night, just messing around, on the computer or maybe playing video games or watching DVDs. Sometimes it's 3AM, if two rolls around and I'm still in the middle of something and just not wanting to stop yet.
The latest I've stayed up in my entire life was about 6AM or a little after. It was during a sleepover with a friend in 6th grade. We went to the video store and rented a bunch of movies and cartoons, then stayed up all night watching them. We made tons of popcorn, and also read comics and played video games. It was a lot of fun. For the longest time, I'd never stayed up anywhere near that late again.
Over the last few years, I've had sleepovers at another friend's house. Since we live(d) about three hours apart, our visits were spread out, so we'd try to do as much as we could for the week or two I was staying. Often we'd be up until 4-5AM, just watching movies and shooting the breeze. Sometimes we'd intend to go to be around 2AM, but we'd get distracted by a movie on a cable, then after that was over, we'd say "We'll just watch a few minutes" of whatever was coming on next, then end up watching that entire movie, too. Good times.
I used to regularly stay up until around 6:00 am, especially after I discovered this forum back in 2005. That was when Teen Titans was still popular and the World's Finest Writers' Corner was in it's glory days. I'd sit up all night reading TT stories until I heard my Dad's alarm clock go off, then try to get in bed and pretend to be asleep before he got up to go to work. I figure he probably heard me most of the time, but he always humored me.
More recently, I'd pull all-nighters playing Xbox or The Sims, but that hasn't been an option since my baby brother was born in March. For some reason I've been saddled with the joyous task of taking care of him when he wakes up during the night (which he does at least once virtually every night), so staying up any later than 3:00 is generally a mistake. I usually try to get to bed as early as possible now, but my three-year-old sister's unpredictable and difficult to manage sleep schedule makes that hard most of the time. She has learned that screaming in this unholy high-pitched voice will get her anything she wants once the baby goes to sleep, and she uses that to keep us from getting her to sleep. She usually gives out by 2:00, at which point I'm on the verge of collapse, too.
There have been a few instances when I've stayed up all night. Most recently, we had new carpet put down in our house this May. For obvious reasons, we had to wait until the last second to move all our furniture and stuff, and I stayed up from 6:00 am until around noon the next day helping with that. Not an experience I'd like to repeat.

I remember when I was little I stayed up all night since I wanted to do it like my big brother did. When I did finally stay up all night, I fell asleep and didn't wake up until around one. Anyway, as for when I'm working on finals or huge papers, I can be up as late as two in the morning and still wake up around six thirty in order to get ready for my classes. I just did that last night working on my final paper for my seminar class, but I hope that I won't have to do that every night until Thursday, the last day of my classes this semester.
43 hours straight.
See, I had a sleep cycle that was from 8am to 4/5pm. I decided to reverse it by simply staying up and... well, it worked; now I had the problem of getting up too early at 4/5am.
Oh well, at least I can do what I have to do and be done around 1/2pm.

I stayed up all night writing a history paper final for college, without resting, followed by a day of classes. It was at the last minute and I wanted the damn thing done, and surprisingly I got an A on it.
I can, and usually stay up all night, except I'm trying to go to bed early from now on so I can go to the gym at 4:30am Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Yes, I have finally broken down and bought a YMCA membership, but it's actually pretty nice and they have cable machines (really nice too), an indoor pool, and cable. Feels like a ski lodge.
Back on topic, if I stay up all night I usually fall apart at noon unless I'm up on my feet, then I'll be lucky if I don't chuck. Nothing's worse than being exhausted and not being able to relax, because my adrenaline won't go down, which is what happens if I force myself to stay up past noon at that point.

At the end of senior year in high school, I pulled an all-nighter working on a calculus project then went to school. That night we left for our senior trip around midnight and I got maybe 2 hours of sleep on the bus, then we had 10 hours at the amusement park we went to then we drove back through the night and I got maybe another hour or two of sleep before crashing when I got home around 2 am.
Both my freshman and sophomore years of college, I had to pull all-nighters and go to class before leaving for Conference Tournament (softball). I'd usually nap on the bus ride, but that is never good sleep. Then we'd have the banquet that evening and not get to bed until 11 or 12 that night.
This semester the latest I've been up was 3:30am Thursday night/Friday morning finishing a paper then getting up at 8:30 for class. But meh. My finals week is going to be relatively quiet this semester, so I don't anticipate any all-nighters with the majority of my work done (three finals and one test stand between me and break, woo~).
When I was 10 years old, I was at a sleepover and we managed to stay up through the night up to about 6:30 A.M., at about that time everyone managed to go to sleep except me , it was a very long night.

3 days. I fell asleep watching a Nascar race, which is as far from boring as my life gets.
48 hours or so.
I've done it a lot, and will probably do it again sometime in the future.
I've stayed up all night maybe once, only because the doctor said I should do it to reset my circadian rhythms. Didn't work, i'm still going to bed and waking up whenever.
Beyond that, I think I stayed up all night a few Christmases ago when I got a set of The Red Green Show DVDs for Christmas. I had to watch all six of them.
I think I also stayed up all night once when I made the mistake of drinking a Jolt cola (which I've since sworn off) on Saturday night. Lucky for me I hadn't yet taken my job as church keyboardist.

I stayed up for nearly two days straight at an anime convention, mainly because of a bad anime endurance challenge, which i completed on a small amount of McDonalds before the marathon and only one bottle of water. I kept from falling asleep by laughing my butt off at how bad of material we were watching, one of the few things we could do during it.
Stand firm for what you believe in, until and unless logic and experience prove you wrong; remember, when the emperor looks naked, the emperor is naked; the truth and a lie are not "sort of the same thing"; and there's no aspect, no facet, no moment of life that can't be improved with pizza.
