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.

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.

Woke up to forearm and hand numbness and weakness. Still there. Go to ER?

Yes if persistent

Asthenia
Transient hand numbness in the morning is very common in conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome. This usually resolves quickly and is not an emergency. However inability to move the hand and persistent weakness can be the sign of something more serious like a stroke.
