How are sleep disorders treated?

Do sleep disorders such as narcolepsy, sleep apnea, insomnia, hypersomnia, etc. ever completely go away? How are these disorders treated? How often do they require continual treatment throughout a patient's life?

How are sleep disorders treated is a rather broad question. There are almost 100 sleep disorders and most of them are treatable. Most, but not all of them, do not just "go away".
