Caffeine doesn't actually give you energy. It has the ability to bind to the same receptor site on the brain as adenosine. As the day goes on, adenosine binds to these receptors, and you start to get sleepy as more and more bind. Since caffeine can bind to these receptors, it prevents adenosine from binding and makes it harder to fall asleep.
