we consume protein every 2-3 hrs but we only grow while asleep,what happens to this protein when it is digested??

once it is digested and has entered the blood the amino acids are

a) used right away to do things like produce enyzmes/muscle etc..
b) used right away to produce glucose or energy ATP
c) stored in the amino acid pool

the amino acid pool however is limited so in essence protein cannot be stored

this is why we eat things like cottage cheese and big slabs of chicken right before bed

we grow all day but it is optimized while sleeping
