I have a theory (now, stop groaning, linkers!).  The brain uses an 
unbelievable amount of our energy (calories/kilojoules) intake per 
day. So when we sleep,  the brain and the body are less active, so 
the brain recharges and body repairs are taking place because we 
aren't moving as much and we certainly aren't thinking. Does that make sense?

(waiting for Tony's directive to move this to unlink -- but of course 
this is probably still the final stages of silly season, so maybe 
he's not so concerned, but I'd imagine some members are)
