I am not a morning person, and don't wake easily. Sometimes it takes a while for the brains cells to power up, assemble, and complete their morning self-check.
I can relate to that. I almost never come up with anything while I'm asleep but on many occasions when I'm away from the computer and not thinking about anything computer related, coding solutions will just pop into my head. The solutions are usually correct and come just at about the time I'm ready to throw up my hands.
Unfortunately I'm the kind of person that once I start coding, I can't stand to stop, particularly if I've run into an obstacle. I think if most people forced themselves to take short breaks from coding, they'd find that their productivity increases.
BTW, narcoleptic episodes don't count as short breaks do they? ;-)

tags should generally be avoided. If they must
be used, extreme care should be
taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
