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

Lo propio de la verdad es que se basta a sí misma, aquel que la posee no intenta convencer a nadie.
"An enemy is somebody who flatters you. A friend is somebody who criticizes the living daylights out of you."
