Ich bin kaputt is rather colloquial, it's literally "I'm broken". A more formal translation would be Ich bin erschöpft.

I'd likely understand that if I heard it. I would think it would accept "Ich bin müde". I know müde is tired, but if you're exhausted, you're tired. Hmm...

I said, "Ich bin todmüde," which means "I am dead tired" (the same thing as "exhausted" to an English speaker). That should have been accepted.

Can't we say "Ich bin leer" like in french "Je suis vidé"?
