Description This program, if connected to your brain through a neural link, regulates sleep cycles. It was originally developed to treat various sleeping disorders, but is useful for getting short, deep naps.

It'd probably be helpful for a normal person pulling an all-nighter, but also probably works well with your abnormal healing.
Type Program
Requires 1 Processor, 1 Memory

Notes

Does nothing if you don't have a Neural Link.
Resting with a REM timer and a Neural Link increases or alters the effects of resting (see below). You do not get any benefits from your gang hideout if you are running this program when you rest. You do not get any benefits from having high First Aid either.

Sometimes appends message (trigger was said to be first time / day, but I didn't get it until a few uses in):

You thought these things were supposed to give a dreamfilled sleep, but apparently not. It was pretty restful, though.
