My boyfriend has been falling asleep on me lately. Should I be annoyed?

So my boyfriend and I talk every night on the phone before falling asleep. We have a long distance relationship by the way. He wakes up around 7:30 am on weekdays for his classes and falls asleep around 12 sometimes 2 am so he obviously doesn't really get enough sleep sometimes. Every single one of those nights, he ends up getting really tired and he stops paying attention to me while I'm talking. I have to repeat myself many times and it frustrates me but I understand why he does that. He's really tired and he does try his best to listen but he just can't. I just tell him to go to sleep and he does after a while of convincing. On weekends, we always talk all day and fall asleep really late because it's the only time we can do that. We stay up late talking and watching movies on call but lately he's been falling asleep on me. He doesn't say goodnight and he doesn't let me know when he's tired. Sometimes, he says "be right back, I won't take too long" but then I realized he must have fallen asleep because it has been too long. He's a very sensitive guy. He always apologizes for it and starts feeling really bad about it but he keeps on doing it. He's worried that I'll be upset at him and he says he can't help it but it's really annoying me. I prefer if he just says goodnight instead of leaving me hanging. I always tell him that I'm not frustrated or annoyed because I know that I'll just make him feel very bad about himself but I just feel like I need to talk to him about it. I don't know what to do. I'm not sure if I'm exaggerating or not. i just don't want to make him feel bad knowing he's sensitive but I'm tired of not being able to tell him these things because of it. I don't know what to do.

Whenever I notice that he's tired or needs some sleep, I tell him to go to bed but he refuses to. He says he wants to stay up with me since he doesn't really have time on weekdays. But then 10 minutes later, he falls asleep without telling me anything and I'm just there waiting. I really do consider the fact that he gets tired staying up too late but I just want him to at least let me know that way I'm not just there waiting for him
