my DD is 11 and when she had sleepovers I go to bed around 11pm and they still be awake, not sure what time they ever ended up going to sleep but I always put rules down when its sleep overs, they have to find that one room they plan on sleeping in and stay put, only allowed to do bathroom breaks and voice has to be low and no running around and being loud and silly much be laying down chilling with music or playing ds.
9 year old DD is usually asleep by 9pm during the week if not earlier and 10pm at the latest on the weekends if she makes it that late. Sleep overs are special :) so there is no real time limit. We have a small house so she know's it needs to be toned down by 11. Her sleep overs never make it that late. They are usually out by 10. I realize that will change as she gets older :).
It really depends. If the kids have nothing going on the next day, we'll let them stay up late (11 pm or midnight). If they do have things going on the next day, we'll make them go to bed by 10 pm.
Funny - my husband and I were just disagreeing over this as my DS has been to sleepovers the past two weekends for birthday parties.
I think it sort of depends - one kid staying over for the heck of it - we set a midnight bedtime. But with multiple kids for a birthday party I'm more lenient.
But be prepared for the grouch monster the next day or two while they catch up on sleep. I always try for Friday nights so there is time to catch up.
we have them go to their room and lay down at normal time
I never had bed times during sleep overs.
