A person will die from total lack of sleep sooner than from starvation.
Death will occur about 10 days without sleep, while starvation takes a few weeks.

i should do it....

I'm doubting it though. You could still get energy from foods and such... do people really need sleep?

I think you'd pass out before 10 days came up but my theory is sleeping is like defragging a computer. In your sleep your brain sorts out and places all the random shit it's encountered or done over the day.
I don't know how you could die from lack of sleep, losing your sanity I could understand...but death does seem a little extreme.
