I found it highly annoying that Sims would sleep for three hours or more after they had a full energy motive. They would also do this frequently after a bed woohoo, even though they were full energy.

This mod improves on this behavior (but doesn't solve it completely due to Sims 4 game scripts).

Sims won't sleep for more than 30 minutes after a bed woohoo (if at all in most cases) when full energy
Sims won't sleep for more than 30 minutes after reaching full energy motive after a nights sleep (Sims will wake up sooner)
Sims won't sleep nearly as often when they aren't low on energy motive
Sims won't be forced to sleep if they have been up for more than 24 hours yet still have a high energy motive

Full Motives Version
Has the same features as above but Sims will wake up fully refreshed with max motives.

If you want a mod that prevents autonomous napping then use No Autonomous Napping on this site.

Don't upload this mod to other sites or claim as your own, thanks.

Any chance you could upload a "Sims won't sleep nearly as often when they aren't low on energy motive" only version of this?

That's basically what this mod is. I'm unsure of what you are asking.

Does this work with the Pets update? I'm finding my Sims keep napping as soon as they're tired.

Mod causes my sims to binge on coffee rather than going to bed. So the mods works but causes another issue. Additionally they sleep for about 3 or 4 hours and have full energy restored, so somehow this reduces their need for sleep by at least half.
