Sleep Deprivation and Stress

It's a long ways to Jupiter from Earth and you are in a (probably tiny cramped) tin can with around 6 other people. Sleep deprivation and stress are 2 major problems that can arise with a long space journey.

Ideas for Stress relief:
Interactive wallpaper (wallpaper that can show you everything from penguin's wandering to the African Safari)
Some limited internet access
Exercise equipment

Sleep Deprivation is a major problem that people don't notice happening to them. In Space this is worse since you don't have sunrise/set to assist in sleeping times.

Research Ideas:
What is the best sleep schedule for humans?
What environments promote the best sleep in weightless space?

Ideas to help with sleep patterns:
Temperature/lighting change
Sound proofed sleeping quarters
Individual sleeping quarters
