what are the most common causes of sleep onset seizures in the mid 30's?

Several: Based upon the age of insert, they would almost certainly be partial insert seizures (aka "localization related"). At least half the time, no clear reason is uncovered for them starting. Other causes include prior trauma, abnormal tangles of blood vessels stuck in the brain, "birthmarks" on the brain in a localized area, among others. Brain tumor is possible, but less common.
