OR....parents who let their children stay up till midnight might be the same type of parents who lack structure in all areas of their children's lives. I doubt that lack of sleep by itself means much more than tired kids.

Not mentioned: teenagers / adults / anyone who is depressed might suffer from sleep apnea or another undiagnosed sleep disorder. I was highly depressed as a teenager / young adult, and it had everything to do with having an undiagnosed sleep disorder.

I think everyone should have a sleep study. If after a full night's sleep, you don't feel refreshed when you wake up......then you definitely should have a sleep study.
