    It depends a lot on your body weight and how long you sleep for, but an example given by the article cited below posits that a person that weighs 160 pounds and sleeps for 43 consecutive minutes will have burnt 49 calories. The article also provides a link to a calculator for figuring out the number of calories burned based on weight (cited below). It calculates that a 150 pound person sleeping for 8 hours (480 minutes) will burn about 515 calories.
