Paint eyes on your eyelids so it looks like your eyes are open when they are really closed.

Tell people you're really near-sighted and have to lean your head on your desk to read anything. Watch out for drooling.

Tell your boss you have recently been diagnosed with an unusual condition - your eyes have become photosensitive and you have to wear big dark sunglasses at all times. Snooze away to your heart's content.

Hmm.. at one job where I worked from 6pm - 6am there was a time from about 3am - 4am where there were no supervisors... a perfect time to catch some zeds. Unless you live in the U.S. you could then catch some zee's.

for me it used to be easy, give them an excuse about going to a meeting with someone to discuss how the current market trends effect the drivers within the forecasting models (sounds more complicated then it is) then you run and hide in the bathrooms !! but those days have changed because now they want to go to the meetings

A 5-10 min nap in the bathroom works pretty okay for me. Otherwise, I just try my best to keep the yawns away by drinking tea. Perks me up a bit.
