In brief: Why?

Since sleep walking is generally harmless-no one has any fatigue issues or accidents, why do anything.
Think of it as a natural way to burn off excess stress.

As long as the sleep walking remains confined to simple repetitive movements, no treatment may be indicated except to safeguard the individual's safety by keeping windows and outside doors,locked and removal of sharp objects and guns.

Most commonly it's a dissociative disorder, a psychiatric condition. Partial complex seizures, possible some other neurological conditions may cause it, or something similar. It has been observed in patients taking certain sleeping pills . Get evaluated medically first, to be sure of the diagnosis.
