Inactivity: When inactive and not having external cues for alertness, there is potential to fall asleep. This is especially true if your body is in need of sleep (chronic sleep deprivation or inadequacy). If this becomes problematic or happen when more engaged, could be sign of major sleep disturbances/problem.
