LOS ANGELES -- Why would a rock manager resign at the moment when his band was about to cash in on the most lucrative recording contract of its career?That was the question buzzing through the music industry last month when Jefferson Holt abruptly stepped down as manager of R.E.M., the superstar rock quartet that just completed the last album on its Warner Bros. Records contract and is poised to become the hottest free agent in the music business.Holt was asked to leave after members of the group investigated allegations that he sexually harassed a female employee at R.E.M.

Are you tired, run-down, listless? The answer to your problem is probably not in a little brown bottle. It could be as simple as a good night's sleep. But for 45 million Americans, that's an elusive dream. Even worse, sleep deprivation, insomnia and untreated disorders such as sleep apnea are leading Americans down a slippery slope to early mortality, increasing their risk for obesity, stroke, hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular problems. And that's not even counting the danger of falling asleep at the wheel.

Finally, after about a decade of somber, shapeless, atmospheric keyboard noodling, R.E.M. has charged up the guitars again. On its new album, Accelerate, the veteran band returns to the high-octane rock and wordy, politically sharp songs that cemented its fame more than 20 years ago. Playing for a nearly sold-out crowd at Merriweather Post Pavilion on Wednesday night, the famed trio of Michael Stipe, Peter Buck and Mike Mills seemed invested and genuinely...

R.E.M. is back. Peter Buck, Mike Mills and Michael Stipe never really went away, but R.E.M. hasn't seemed the same in recent years. The R.E.M. that has re-emerged in 2008 is, once again, the one fans first loved. The consensus on Accelerate, the Athens, Ga.-based trio's 14th studio album, is that it's the group's best work since the 1997 departure of drummer Bill Berry. British music weekly NME says the album, released in April, "crucially echoes a time when they made their best music, if not necessarily their biggest-selling."

It looks like the best offering on TV tonight is "Saturday Night Live" -- and how long has it been since that happened? It's partly because R.E.M. is on "SNL," and partly because it's such a slow night.* "Sweet Justice" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., Channel 2) -- NBC is doing everything it can to dress up this two-hour episode of "Sweet Justice." It's given it a new title -- "Love Kills" -- a lot of promotion, and then quickly referring to it as a "special 'Sweet Justice' movie." A series episode, by any other name, is just that, even during the November sweeps.

If it's true that time flies when you're having fun, life must be a blast for R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck."This English journalist came in town for this record, and he had come here once before," he says, over the phone from the band's offices in Athens, Ga. "So I introduced him to my wife, saying, 'You've met my wife.' And he said, 'You weren't married when I came here.'" 'I wasn't married when you came here? When did you come here?'" '1985.'"That was seven years ago!" laughs Buck. "I thought he'd been there just a year before.

Ask Bill Berry what made the biggest difference in the sound of R.E.M.'s new album, "Monster," and he answers, "Pete bought a Marshall.""Pete," of course, is R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck, and the Marshall question is a Marshall amp -- the burly, watt-pumping, speaker-shredding amplifier of choice for big-time guitar gods. You've heard the mighty Marshall roar if ever you've spent time listening to rockers like Aerosmith, Kiss and Metallica -- bands that specialize in crunching power chords and ear-splitting solos.

Think of the possibilities: You're heading to Germany in a month, and you want to learn the language. There's no time for classes, but if you can play language tapes that promise to teach you while you sleep, you can effectively accomplish seven or eight hours each night. You'll be brilliant, the envy of everyone. And you'd be dreaming. Or, rather, you should be dreaming, and not trying to cram while sleeping. Those seductive ads that promise that you can learn while you sleep are bogus.

OUT OF TIMER.E.M. (Warner Bros. 26527)Once a band makes it to the big time, it usually loses its sense of adventure. Not R.E.M., however; if anything, the group seems more willing than ever to take chances. With "Out of Time," the band tinkers with its instrumentation and toys with a variety of pop styles. Yet no matter how far afield these go, R.E.M. never loses its identity or sense of direction, whether it's dabbling in old-time country with "Half a World Away" or flirting with funk in "Radio Song."

"Here's a brand-new song . . . one we just wrote last Thursday," singer Michael Stipe said Monday during the opening show in R.E.M.'s first U.S. tour in more than five years.For about 30 seconds, most of the 20,000 fans at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, Calif., believed him. It wasn't until you got used to the aggressive new textures and started focusing on the words that you realized R.E.M. was playing its 1991 hit "Losing My Religion."The moment was typical of the adventurous, good-natured spirit of a band that shows no evidence of resting on its laurels.

Sleep is vital to the development of brain and body. That truism comes from basic observations about humans and other mammals, that sleep is maximized at birth and declines gradually until adulthood. But a new finding threatens to throw that common wisdom out the window. Researchers have discovered that some whales and dolphins don't sleep after birth. Both newborns and their mothers stay continuously active for about a month and then gradually build up their sleep to normal adult levels after four or five months.
