57 hours, at an anime convention.
I didn't have a hotel room of my own then and decided to pull through, but when I started hallucinating on sunday morning a friend offered me his room so I could get some sleep for at least a few hours.

2 and a half days during a 5 day long gaming party.
My friends were easy to take out in halo when they started to see things that weren't there.

Almost 3 days. Stress, work, illness. My brain broke a little on that one. Don't recommend it. Helps that I have insomnia which I mostly have under control... mostly, sometimes. occasionally.

This one time I hadn't slept in like 50+ hours and that's probably my record. I had been watching films with my friends til 6am in the morning then we went out for a 2 hour walk for some dumb reason. Then I didn't feel like going to sleep in the middle of the day so I waited til past midnight before going to sleep. Games and anime kept me awake, then I lost track of time and yeah...

72 hours preparing, finishing, and presenting my engineering capstone project, a non-stop marathon of the made dash to finish all the programming, constructing and modeling for the project, creating and presenting power-points, suits and ties, handing out business cards, and networking with sponsors. Much of what I remember is a blur but got an A+ in the end for the project.

Three because I was in the Hospital a few months ago. I couldn't sleep in the hospital bed and I actually started hallucinating after a while.

Ya know I was going to post an answer then I read that..Why would you go anywhere that is not within easy travelling distance of your place without securing some form of accommodations?

Anyway to answer, two and half days. As for the why, I found it impossible to sleep my first three days in Afghanistan.

Not sure of the duration but I know for certain that the longest was right at the end of my final year of university. I hadn't written a single word for my project report until a day or two before the deadline (I had about eight months to write it). I somehow managed to pull it off though (15000 words!). I doubt it would've been possible without some of those trusty cans of Relentless - the poor man's Red Bull.
