    Утомление берет свое

    Возмущаясь, Лаев сует подбородок в воротник, кладет голову на свой портфель и мало-помалу успокаивается. Утомление берет свое, и он начинает засыпать.

    How would you translate Утомление берет свое?
    thanks

    tiredness tells, tiredness has its effect

    The closer (but worse?) translation could be "tiredness comes into its own".
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    ok , thanks. I somehow thought берет referred to Лаев but it didn't make sense because свое is in the neuter.

    better would be: tiredness/fatigue takes its toll
    Не откладывай на завтра того, с кем можешь переспать сегодня
