I've always been a late sleeper. On summer vacation during college, my sleep schedule would get completely turned upside down, too, to the point that I was working all night and going to sleep when the birds started chirping. There is something about that period of time that makes me very productive. I have fond memories of those days.

Hey, if you're single, you might try poly-phasic sleep. I had heard about it before, but read more about it in Tim Ferriss's Four Hour Body. Basically, you sleep for 20 minutes, every 4 hours, around the clock. Sounds weird, but apparently it works.

According to Tim, Matt Mullenweg, the lead programmer for Wordpress, slept that way for a year while he was developing WP. He said it was the most productive year of his life. Then he said he got a girlfriend and had to get on a regular schedule. Some info online here.

Anyway, something to consider. Let me know if you try it. But yes, I know how hard it is to get back on a regular schedule. Its like having a bad case of jetlag.

Good luck. Keep us posted.

He's the man.
