I used to sleep in my regular disposables off and on & when my eye doctor saw that (they can tell by looking at minor damage to your eye that you have been doing that when you are not supposed to so there's a reason right there) he gave me ones designed for overnight wear up to a week. Thought that would be good thing, but after about a month of wearing them (5-6 days nonstop, take them out for one overnight, put them back in for another 5 - 6 days) I got a horrible eye infection. Not only could I not open that eye cuz of pain, when light hit my uninfected eye I had pain in the infected eye because your eyes react to light together even when one is closed. I went to the doctor to get better but I was basically unable to open either eye for almost 3 days until the infection was under control. So trust me, it's NOT WORTH IT
You should not because contacts are for seeing far away or from close up. So when you are asleep and your eyes are shut, then you see nothing right? and by the way nubicruz is right. It will mess up your eyes.
Ask your Optometrist about the 30 day contacts. I've worn them for about 5 years. I keep them in for 30 days. At the end of the 30 days I wear my glasses for a week then go back into a new pack of contacts for 30 days. They are more expensive than the daily wear.
I used to have contacs, you can wear them to bed, but realize, they are 'water based' and need that to be properly sized as they are. When asleep, you don't blink, and no extra 'contac-teardrops' go to your eyes, they dry out and could harm your eyes by becoming more brittle. Week long contacs have been made, but I do not know of their quality.

its bad for u because one time my uncle sleep wth some on and woke up blind as a bat...and plus I know dis woman dat like 2 wear blue contacts and when she slept in dem she couldnt take nothang but 1 out n now 2 dis day she has 2 walk around wth 1 blue eye and 1 brown eye.
There are proteins and such that build up on/under the contacts, basically you have a bunch of food for bacteria to eat on your eye which makes you more susceptible to infection and possible blindness,

Contacts cause build up in the eyes and your eyes need a break! If you wear contacts too long it could make your eyes dry, crusty or even infected! Allow me to answer your question with another question- why should you or would you sleep with contacts?
