One of my weaknesses is the determination to complete a project, at the cost of sleep. Not hitting milestones and completing projects by deadline, are issues that just aren't acceptable.

Most people tell you to take a strength and make it sound like it's a weakness (like being too dedicated, too hardworking, etc.), but IME the best answer is one that WAS a true weakness in the past (but not too bad, and maybe not really something that is directly related to the job you're interviewing for), and then explaining what you did to improve, so it's not a problem anymore.

Most people's strengths, are their weaknesses.

I think you're giving people the benefit of the doubt, and too much credit. Though granted, I'm feeling pretty frustrated with my employees right now.
