Must you sleep with 500m of your transmitter?

I'll probably draw some flak for this posting from the purists, but here

If one is participating in a 48 hour contest, and wants to take a 4 hour
snooze, sometimes it is difficult to unwind and fall asleep right away.
There is a rapid-acting prescription sleep aid, "Sonata," that causes a
rapid onset of sleep, and then clears itself out of the body rapidly.
Assisted sleep time is about four hours.  If you sleep longer than that, it
is not caused by the drug.  The drug used to be very expensive, but has
recently gone off-patent, and is now available as a generic, "Zaleplon," at
about 60 cents per capsule.
