I tried to stay up all night on the 15th of Nisan, but after 4 cups of wine/grape juice, lots of carbs and fat, and no coffee to keep me awake (we need the taste of matza all night - don't shoot me on this), I feel asleep.....

I have always found the following disparity amazing:

On Pesah, it is clearly a mitsvah min hamuvhar to stay up all night involved in Sippur Yetsiat Mitsrayim. I do not know a single person who observes this "humra" deliberately, despite the fact that it is a halakhically endorsed stringency.

On the other hand, staying up all night on Shavuot has no halakhic basis, yet almost everyone believes it to be either a requirement or a "minhag yisrael", and, as a result, it is quite popularly observed in most communities despite its lack of any halakhic mandate.
