is it true that if you wake up a lot at night, it's as bad as pulling an all-nighter?

let's say you spend 12 hours in bed, but you only spend 10 of those hours asleep, is that really as bad as not getting any sleep at all?

    --  If you are waking up a number of times during the night, it may be because you are snoring, or have "sleep apnea".  Talk with your family doctor and be referred to a sleep/breathing specialist for an overnight sleep test.  From there, you will know what is happening, and if you need one of many treatments relevant to your possible condition.

    --  Poor sleep can make a person still tired in the morning, and affect the performance for the rest of the day.

    Not at all. Even if you think you cannot sleep, stay in bed and relax. Resting is beneficial. Also, sleep studies have shown that many people who think they are awake are actually asleep for much of the time in bed.
