Arrow Puppy SUDDENLY won't sleep! Help plzzz

Some Background: My puppy is 7 months old now (we got him at 10 weeks) and he is a mutt. Lab, Shepard, Pit, Chow Chow, Terrier, who knows what else. He is high energy and is really hard to manage. He has had training and has seemed to get with the program so far. He's potty trained (and actually never had an issue like getting up to go potty at night) and a very friendly and loving boy. So whats the issue?
Now, all of a sudden, he will fall asleep fine and wakes up randomly in the middle of the night. Usually between 1 AM - 4 AM and occasionally it will be multiple times. He doesn't do much of anything but walk around the room, chew on things, sniff around... the usual puppy stuff, but always makes sure to wake us up. SO.. from there we tried the crate, which works a little better but instead he will wake up in the middle of the night and cry and bark relentlessly.
I've tried everything. I wear him down to the point of exhaustion, no more naps during the day, feed him around 5, take away his food and water around 8-9 (an hour before bed), clean bill of health, cover the crate, ignored him, don't ignore him.. basically anything I could find on the internet. Has anyone else had this problem?! Please help!!

You have to completely ignore him.

Consistency is the key. Puppies like routine. Also you said that you have exercised the puppy till beyond tired. What type of exercise just physical or have you stimulated the puppy mentally? Mental exercise will tire out a dog much more quickly than physical exercise. However puppies need both. Food puzzles, hunting games (nose work), muffin tin with tennis balls (food hidden under one), teaching tricks Join a Spark Team - Do More With Your Dog

He could be hungry again, especially with lots of physical exercise & growing. I give my dog 2 decent size dog biscuits before bed & she wakes around mid night eats them, has a little drink & goes back to sleep. If you limit it & give just a little bowl of water it's not enough to create wees & poop. Just enough to cease hunger pains.
