lack of sleep will cause you to go crazy. your mind needs sleep to process information, basically to dream.your body rejuvenates itself in sleep. it is the actions from nonsleeping that will kill you because you are severely impaired

Michael Jackson died from prescription pain killers.
Report as
He died from them because they caused a lack of the REM sleep cycle.
Report as
No... he died of heart complications from abusing painkillers.
They might have interrupted his sleep cycle but his overall death was from abusing drugs, causing a heart attack.

I think at some point you would just collapse and sleep for like a whole day. But if you keep drinking coffee, yes, you could die.

The lack of sleep itself cannot kill you... drugs could cause you to stay awake too much but them the drugs would be the result of your death. Ways that you could die because of sleep deprivation are what lack of sleep causes..... things like falling asleep behind the wheel, depression and suicidal thoughts, diabetes, stress (heart attack) etc.
Hope I helped ^_^
