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.0
