Science Friday has a section on sleep.

First you need to be getting the amount of sleep your body needs in the night.  So are you getting 7-9 hours at night?

When I was younger and not in an office during daytime working hours I would take naps when my schedule permitted during the day. I don't have any solid evidence to support this but personally I had the most success with trying to time my nap to sleeping cycles. I heard somewhere that you sleep in 3 hour cycles. If I was able to lay down and get a 45 minute nap or a 90 minute nap I would wake up refreshed and ready to go. If the nap was 30 minutes or an hour there was no telling how I would feel when I woke up.

This mentions the cycles and my numbers sort of fall in line with theirs.

On the rare occasion where I am exhausted I will go to me car during my one hour lunch break to take a nap. I drink some caffeine then set my alarm for 45 minutes and recline my seat back. I get a nice little power nap and the caffeine has kicked in at this point and I usually wake up feeling better than when I went to sleep.

Finally someone understands what I'm talking about. 

Never get them during the week,but I love them on a random weekend day.

"Did anybody expect a Libertarian platform having a more than tenuous connection with reality?  Even the NPR sound bites from the Libertarian convention had less connection with reality than Rand Paul on a bad day."
