I don't know FF, but I hope someone does. My dd (6) is exactly the same. We have to physically remove books from her and take lightbulbs out of sockets...but she still won't sleep. Says she can;t turn her brain off.

She copes with lack of sleep not by being grumpy and stroppy, but by being more 'away with the fairies' than normal, but this makes it hard to deal with her (i.e. you have to repeat every instruction three times, or precede everything with her name said VERY LOUDLY)!

Hope someone comes along and answers this!
