Is sleeping on your desk an actual thing which happen or it is a misconception provided by movies?

I have never slept on my desk no matter how tired I am (I had done a week coding marathon) .I always wrap myself with fluffy blanket when sleeping.

    It can happens sometimes, after a fatty lunch.

    Thing is, my desk is in an open space, and since I usually fall asleep on the keyboard, my face sometimes has traces of individual keys.

    Not very discreet.

    It's not something you plan but rather just happens.

    I have caught myself falling sleep on my desk a few times followed by utter disbelief and pretending to be just thinking with my head down.

    Maybe it because I always have caffeinated drink on my desk while working that I don' have a same experience as you.

    I have "I am tired going to sleep for 15 minute" moment but don't have unexpected sleep.

    @heyheni Here is an idea. Since keyboard sleep is the best , we should stuff the pillow with keyboard :)

    It does indeed. You just close your door, lie back in your chair and that's it

    It's different from what I am describing. I am describing what the suddenly sleeping while working like in the image below.

    The thing you are describing look like a normal sleep. I have sleep on various situation (sleeping while talking , sleeping while standing ) and sleeping while walking (which I admit its dangerous) , maybe you could say it "sleep walking" :)

    Maybe something is wrong with my common sense since I think sleeping on a chair is normal.

    It doesn't happen anymore....

    It's not a thing when your company actually abides the law and your country has work protection laws.

    When you've worked > 30 hours, a sleep on the keyboard for a few hours is better than trying to get back home.... Because your brain just doesn't work anymore.

    Oh it's real, that keyboard imprint is hard to hide.

    Long weeks of brain numbing tasks end up with a sleeping @C0D4 😅

    Does sleeping during a night shift count ?

    Yeah, I’ve fallen asleep on my desk quite a few times. It’s not frequent, but it happens when I don’t sleep and also don’t want to leave my desk

    True story, I commented it yesterday and got pictured by a colleague in the afternoon while sleeping on my chair.
    Bastard shared it on Teams.
