Why do we sleep?

With regard to the statement in a reply to "Why do we sleep", someone
suggested that it is a conservative measure for the body--a "catch-up"
time.  Is there some sort of mechanism that causes an increase in body
temp at this time?  I've discovered that my body temp goes up about 10
degrees immediately after I fall asleep, and have wondered at the reason. 
Any thoughts?
