Is it true that you shouldn't wake up a person who is sleep walking?

If so, why not?

  • It's because sleepwalking occurs in NREM3 and/or NREM4, which is two/three sleep phases below NREM1 and NREM2. So technically waking them up is like while your computer is busy defragmenting drives, you start kicking it until it shuts down so you can power it back on.

    It's essentially just not good for the brain. It takes a lot of effort to succeed anyways. They aren't exactly awake. In fact, they're as deep in sleep as they can get.

  • IF i remember correctly its actually not harmful to wake someone up during sleep walking, especially if they might hurt them self. once again If I remember correctly waking them up at most will leave them a little dazed and confused, but you just make sure to help them get back to bed.

  • Because it's funnier to film them and show them back the video later.
