** Not so much an old wives' tale as a popular oversimplification. People who've had a concussion shouldn't be left alone, sleeping ''or'' awake, because if their brain starts to swell from the injury, they'll pass out and will need someone to rush them into emergency care before their respiration shuts down. Waking them up if they doze off is necessary to determine if they ''can'' be aroused from their unconscious state; it's not because sleep is dangerous in itself. In fact, keeping them from sleeping at all [[TelevisionIsTryingToKillUs can make matters worse as it slows down healing and can even do further damage]]; the accepted rule of thumb is that you only want to keep a concussion victim awake until they get medical attention, at which point you should listen to the experts as to how often you should try to rouse them.

* ''Manga/FairyTail'': [[LightIsNotGood Larcade]] of Alvarez has this as one of his three main powers, [[ImmodestOrgasm "Pleasure"]], [[MeatOVision "Soul of the Wicked Meal"]], and [[ForcedSleep "R.I.P."]]. R.I.P. is the most dangerous, as it causes extreme drowsiness that not even pain can snap you out of, and once you close your eyes, you'll enter an eternal slumber you'll never wake up from.

* In a more literal sense, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fatal_familial_insomnia fatal familial insomnia]] kicks in somewhere between the ages of 35 and 60 and just turns off your ability to sleep. And you die of it an average of a year and a half later, never having slept in that time.
** Not sleeping at all kills your immune system in the matter of weeks, not months, and death follows quickly afterwards. In practice even the worst insomniacs do actually sleep every now and then, a few minutes at the time, but don't consciously register it.

Let's get this out of the way first: regardless of what you might think, here at TvTropes ending up on NightmareFuel pages ''[[OhCrap right before bedtime]]'' might not seem that easy, but it ''is''. Cases of people going to bed with their most recent memories of the site being mind-scarring images of angels [[NightmareFuel/DoctorWho (both]] [[NightmareFuel/NeonGenesisEvangelion kinds)]] are ''far'' more frequent than you might ever imagine. You're free to think this is a ShmuckBait, but if this page is the last you've browsed without having seen the aforementioned articles first, then please don't click on those links unless you know you won't have to sleep for two more hours at the very least. Whatever else may be the case, you're still in time to do a favor to your brain by having [[SweetDreamsFuel this other article]] as the very last you browse.
