Sleep is an effect players or monsters may encounter in NetHack. While asleep, you are immobilized for a number of turns. Sleep resistance prevents this from happening. As of Nethack 3.6: You hear sounds are prefaced with "You dream that".

Ways to fall asleep

Free action prevents sleep from potions of sleeping only.

Sleeping monsters

Some of the above events can also affect monsters, and some monsters (notably nymphs) are generated sleeping. Monsters affected by sleep attacks will sleep for a number of turns and then wake up. Those generated asleep will only wake up when you approach (if you do not have stealth) or attack them.
