What's the best way to record audio (or video) of myself sleeping? Yes, ideally, eight hours of low-quality audio in one shot.

Or video, if it's somehow not much more difficult/expensive.
1) I've been informed by previous roommates that I snore, but they are vague on the details and never make a big deal about it, so I wonder about the severity and length. Video would obviously help me understand sleeping position, too.
2) I've also been told by previous partners that sometimes I talk quite a bit in my sleep. Bonus: psychoanalyze myself!
Would I basically have to set up some sort of crude home surveillance system like in the Truman Show/Paranormal Activity? (I have my own room in an apartment.)
Previous guy on MeFi who wants to be Truman.
Also, my roommate mentioned that there are "sleep labs" where you can get a battery of tests run on yourself. This sounds potentially expensive and more than a little uncomfortable. Anyone been to one of these labs?
