    WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- Many Americans are so sleepy that they are having problems in their marriages, making mistakes at work and even going without sex, according to a report released Tuesday.

    The poll by the National Sleep Foundation found that 75 percent of adults frequently have a symptom of a sleep problem such as frequent waking during the night or snoring. But few believe they have a sleep problem and most ignore it.

    "Half of the country sleeps pretty well -- the other half has problems," Foundation chief executive Richard Gelula said in a statement.

    What is to blame? The survey of more than 1,500 adults found that 87 percent usually watched TV in the hour before going to bed, 47 percent usually had sex and 64 percent read.
