How Many Hours Did Steve Jobs Sleep Per Night?

Clearly, the late great Steve Jobs, the creative force behind the largest and most successful tech company of all time, has inspired an entire generation of entrepreneurs. Now that the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) figurehead is gone, the world is still trying to learn more about how Jobs thought, how he lived and how he was so successful.

Jobs has inspired a number of recent Quora questions:

  • What did Steve Jobs say to employees in company emails?

  • How many hours per day did Steve Jobs work?
  • What was Steve Jobs’ typical day like?
  • Did Steve Jobs exercise?
  • Could Steve Jobs have worked for Steve Jobs?

    Michael Murdock, who worked with Jobs at Pixar and was friends with Jobs for 24 years, took a shot at the question of how much Jobs sleeps at night. The spirit of his reply also sheds some light on what Jobs would say about fans’ obsession with his personal life.

    “I never thought to ask him: Steve, one day, people will want to know how many hours a night you slept; what should I tell them?” Murdock wrote.

    “I know his reply would have been something on the order of: ‘Michael, seriously? In the grand scheme of life, how does this matter?’”
