Without going back to the chrons to look for supporting material, I somehow had the impression that it was their telepathic link, and not so much the Vow, that allowed the Haruchai to get by with little or no sleep.

I disagree. Bannor clealy pointed out that he could no longer do without sleep in TPTP. He mentioned this on the Plains of Ra when he met Covenant there. That makes it pretty clear it was the power of the Vow that kept them without sleep all those centuries.

On further review, I see my vaguely-remembered impression was wrong. Here's what SRD said about it when discussing the 2nd Chrons: "They're just so ^#$%# stoical that they do all their sleeping off-stage."
