Can a torn rotator cuff cause hand numbness when sleeping?

Yes, although rare

Palm
Numbness after a torn rotator cuff would most likely result from a change in sleeping posture. Often after the injury, patients pre- and postoperatively tend to sleep with the injured shoulder up when they sleep on their side. Sleeping on one's side, often with hands tucked under the pillow or wrists flexed is a very common cause or exacerbating factor in median neuritis or carpal tunnel syndrome.

Can sleeping hard cause hand numbness during sleep?

Yes

Extremity-upper-hand
Sleeping hard means being so deeply asleep that the person is unresponsive to stimuli which would ordinarily cause some postural adjustment or actual awakening. If a wrist is markedly bent or the elbows markedly flexed or the shoulder abducted, this could happen.

Sleeping at night with my arms bent causes hand numbness. Try to sleep with my arms straight, usually without success. Any suggestions or excersises?

Splints

Nocturnal
Flexion of the elbows as wells as wrists as we sleep puts stress on the ulnar and median nerves respectively which contributes to cubital and carpal tunnel. It is difficult to maintain proper positioning at night without some type of either wrist or elbow splint depending on the nerve involved.
