Okay, well, if you're going to the Skull Cavern and can't afford a Farm Totem, I question your priorities.
Shouldn't be breaking the bank for seeds after Fall of year 1.
I see that passing out at 2am doesn't lose items like passing out from damage does, but still. There's always shit to do. That's a bunch of foraging, fishing, and gifting you're not doing the next day, for the marginal benefit of doing 1-2 more mine levels even not counting minecarts/farm totems.
I disagree with you, sir!
(Also, you start losing next-day energy when you go to sleep after midnight. It's really, really not that important to stay up as late as possible working.)
