There's a story about a person who didn't sleep for decades, but spent their rest time reading books. One might speculate this behavior was possible because reading was a slow paced activity allowing rest, but being who I am I of course believe where a little degree of something is possible it must be possible to extend further, often to extremes.
Sleep however is one of the most important parts of regenerating vital functions in your brain, among other things. So is it possible to function healthily and at full capacity without proper 'unconscious' sleep?

For a while, but sleep (more specifically dreaming) is important to connect with Higher Self. If one does not connect to Higher Self then they will start to hallucinate (go crazy) in physical existence because Higher Self needs a way to communicate.

Yes i do believe it's physically possible for certain individuals to live normal lives and never actually go to sleep as most people do, these people are of course exceptions.
Here's a bit about Al Herpin known as the man who never slept
Tesla also claimed that he never slept, though i suspect that in his case he was speaking metaphorically
