ASD and Needing Sleep

I can function quite well 99% of the time; some people cannot even tell if  I have ASD. However, when I get tired I start to exhibit traits that are characteristics of lower functioning ASD. I went to school today after being up all night. I did fine until I fell asleep. When I woke up a couple of hours later, I was not functioning; I can stay up late and faction. However, once I fall asleep I need a good 8 hours a night to function.
