    The sleep deprived person may start to experience apathy, slowed speech and flattened emotional responses, impaired memory and an inability to be novel or multitask. As a person gets to the point of falling asleep, he or she will fall into micro sleeps(5-10 seconds) that cause lapses in attention, nod off while doing an activity like driving or reading and then finally experience hypnagogic hallucinations, the beginning of REM sleep….. http://www.apa.org/topics/whysleep.html

    That can vary. The human body can only go for so long without sleep before it'll just fall unconcious. Staying awake for 4 days is possible, but unhealthy. Situations that require it would be life and death situations. In the event that you try this, you'd better be ready to get sick and end up feeling tired for a week or 2 afterward.

    I think that no amount of any energy booster could keep someone awake for 4 days. Eventually your body should just shut down and you'll just crash, pass out, or faint.
