En su sentido negativo, como "no poder pegar ojo"

no poder conciliar el sueño

(v.) = have + trouble sleeping, have + trouble sleeping
Ex: Usually, when I have trouble sleeping it's not because I feel wrong or anything like that, it just happens. Ex: Usually, when I have trouble sleeping it's not because I feel wrong or anything like that, it just happens.

no pegué/pegó (el or un) ojo en toda la noche I/he didn't sleep a wink
