Non-24-hour sleep–wake disorder causes a person’s sleep–wake cycle to change every day, the degree determined by how many minutes or hours over 24 hours the cycle lasts. The cycle progresses around the clock, eventually returning to “normal” for one or two days before “going off” again. This is known as free-running sleep.
