Don't stress about it. Of course that's nearly impossible to do. I'd say bring your own pillows, and also perhaps purposefully sleep deprive yourself the night before just a bit. The weird environment and electrodes all over you have a habit of making sleep difficult. So if you're a little extra sleepy, it wouldn't hurt.

Anything you can do to make you more comfortable like bringing your own pillow/stuffed animal, calling a loved one, is so important because I think the likelihood of people having to redo these tests are high.
Also, don't freak out if you don't think you've fallen asleep in the naps. I didn't think I fell asleep in my first nap, but after answering those 3 questions they always ask (1. Did you fall asleep? 2. Did you dream? 3??? -- do they still do this?) the tech told me that I had fallen asleep and that reassured me not to worry about it.
Bring a hat to cover up the glue they put on your scalp (looks like pigeon $&@#) when you leave to go home.
