My boyfriend landscapes, so I know he would be tired after a long day at work. But he falls asleep at night QUICKLY. Like 3 seconds fast? Is he ok?

In brief: Probably yes

Fatigue is quite common after a long physical day of work.
However, if he is not working and feels tired or sleepy during the day, then sleep apnea can be a possibility. Typical symptoms of sleep apnea include heavy snoring during sleep, periods of not breathing during sleep, frequent morning headache when wake up, and day-time sleepiness.
