What is the longest time someone can possibly stay awake?

For me when I was young a had a family gathering. I remember that my family started playing cards and it was around 5 am when the party was over. Me my moms and sibling when home and I kept awake until around 6 pm. So I'm guessing that I stayed awake for almost 32 hrs.
Sorry I'm asking all of you to do the math

  • bootcamp my bro and hubby had to stay awake for 72 hours straight. when he got back he learned how to sleep with his eyes open and keep writing.... it's confusing when he falls asleep on the couch now cuz his eyes stay open and i talk to him and he actually answers back...
    one time i was talking to my brother and he fell asleep in mid sentence for about 30 min.. then woke back up and finished his sentence! lol
    as for me, i catnap so i never stay up long enough

  • I am someone who LOVES my sleep so i guess i have really never tried to stay up to just stay up. I do enjoy getting up at 430-5 am so yes i just got up a little while ago. It's my peace and quite time before my family gets up.
