Thats great, I am myself in a big dilemma, what time would be perfect. I am going to take a date for first week of sept, and will have to take date in march start, considering all slots in bay area get taken up very quickly!

I am in the New York area and here, it is said, that we need to book slots atleast 2 months in advance to be sure of the time/date that we want.
So,it wuld be a good idea for you too, to book early and then prepare yourself for that time.
I know that some people may have found this post of mine very trivial (how does the time matter???!!!) but, this did AFFECT me largely since being a strict non-morning person, I took the test at 8 AM only to realize that I had not yet 'woken' up fully

8am is too early for me too! I even postponed taking the exam a month later because they only had 8am available for the month I wanted to test. I settled on 10:30am in May.

You have time to train your body and brain to work for you... Take practice tests at the same time your actual GMAT is going to be. Eat meals and snacks at the same intervals you would on test day. When I first took the GMAT, I had the same concerns as you! My appointment was at 2pm, right when my body starts to crash after lunch. About two weeks before the test, I started eating small snacks for lunch, instead of my usual meal. It helped me avoid the crash! However, on test day, I got so nervous, I barely got a bite down at breakfast and didn't end up eating any snacks during the test breaks! I wasn't tired though!
