Do astronauts suffer from hypnic jerks?

Do astronauts suffer from hypnic jerks? That sensation of falling as you're drifting off to sleep that causes your body to thrash to catch you, but you're already safe in bed. I would think that since astronauts have been constantly falling that their brain would be desensitized to it. Does anyone have some definitive answers?

More jetlag, please?

Normally, waking up is a struggle for me, involving many uses of the snooze button. I was in Europe for almost two weeks in late May, and while I was there, I found that I was waking up rather early every morning, before my alarm clock, and felt incredibly refreshed and ready to go. [more inside]

I'm tempted to sleep in the refrigerator.

I sometimes sweat profusely while I sleep and I'm wondering if there is any way to make this stop. If I make it too cold, I can't fall asleep, and if I fall asleep, I wake up drenched in sweat to the point I have to change the sheets. How do I cope with this? [more inside]

I can't sleep. Also, I can't wake up!

I think I have delayed sleep phase disorder. Recently I found an online questionnaire that asked questions about your natural preferred wake and sleep times, along with the times necessary to fit into your actual life schedule. It would then calculate what time you should expose yourself to very bright light, and for what periods of time in order to shift your wake and sleep patterns. I cannot find it now that I really need to change my schedule. Anyone have any idea where I could find this site again?

Who was this nurse who slept very little?

Help me find an account of a retired nurse who required very little sleep. The first night in a sleep lab, she couldn't fall asleep at all. The next night, she slept some absurdly short time (I seem to recall seventeen minutes). She appeared alert and performed well on both days and claimed that she habitually slept very little her entire life. I think I read her story in a pop-science publication five to fifteen years ago.
