My old FAA medical examiner just wanted a statement from my previous sleep doctor that I didn't suffer from daytime somnolence. The FAA considers a pilot falling asleep while flying to be "bad". My last adventure with a new sleep doctor was a "Maintenance of Wakefulness Test" in which I had to sit quietly in a darkened room, without moving, for 40 minutes without falling asleep. Four times in an eight hour period.

I HAVE had more fun.
