Would this have a negative influence on the recuperative effect of sleep?

@draks note that this question has been asked (and answered) on quora: quora.com/Sleep/… –  Jeff Nov 29 '12 at 5:46
@Jeff thanks for the link, but in my opinion the answers there are inconclusive, but it looks like it depends on you... –  draks ... Apr 8 '13 at 22:42
@Jeff can you use the resources in the quora answers to inform an answer suitable to this site? –  Artem Kaznatcheev Dec 4 '13 at 17:30
@jeff would you mind posting an answer here? –  draks ... Jan 7 at 9:12
@draks... '@Artem i posted the link because i thought it provided an answer to your question, but this is not my area of expertise. if one of you wants to paraphrase the answer on quora or do some more research, that would be great, but i don't have time for it at the moment –  Jeff Jan 9 at 18:31
