To add insult to injury, the sleepwalker will often walk almost always end their night of hilarious sleepwalking hijinks by walking right back into their own bed, and wake then immediately waking up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed while bushy-tailed, remarking that they had a wonderful night's sleep, as their companion collapsed collapses from exhaustion.

* ''{{Literature/Cujo}}'': During the first night they spend at her sisters' house, Charity finds her son Brett sleepwalking. Although she has enough common sense to know that all those horror stories about the dangers of waking up a sleepwalker are just myths, she still can't bring herself to wake him up and instead watches him untill he goes back to bed. She also recalls how she took Brett to the doctor when he was six because of his frequent sleepwalking, and the doctor blamed [[CriticalResearchFailure poorly researched movies]] for the wrong ideas people still have about sleepwalking.

* Inverted with another old wives' tale regarding sleep--sleeping while suffering a concussion. Many folks claim that if you suffer a concussion, you have to stay awake because falling asleep will cause you to slip into a coma. In reality, sleep (or rest in general) is actually one of the best treatments for a concussion; being too active will only strain your brain and make the condition worse, resting your brain will help speed up recovery.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' has Dexter's dad wandering into his secret lab which was filled with dangerous machines and experiments. The most amusing part is that his dad claims he is a light sleeper yet all the machinery and lasers don't wake him up - a simple thing like Dexter shutting a door does.

Interestingly, this episode has a legitimate justification for Dexter not waking up his dad: He doesn't want him to see his secret laboratory.

* Also averted in an episode of ''Series/HannahMontana''. When Miley starts sleepwalking, her friends and brother repeatedly try to wake her up so that she stops, but for the most part she keeps doing it. At one point, her brother Jackson comments that you're "supposed to wake a sleepwalker ''gently''".

* Averted on an episode of GilligansIsland. The Professor has no problem snapping his fingers to wake up a sleepwalking Gilligan despite Skipper's protests. Gilligan wakes up only slightly disoriented, which is practically normal [[TheDitz for Gilligan.]]

* One ''[[ArchieComics Archie]]'' comic has Jughead, for some unexplained reason, sleepwalk through almost all of his entire school day. To avoid waking him up, the teachers give all of their students tests. During lunch, Jughead stays asleep but eats the food off of everyone's trays. He eventually wakes up when the school bell rings, suffering from no ill effects. The other students aren't very happy.

* In ''Film/StepBrothers'', both lead ManChild characters are mischievous, almost sentient, sleepwalkers.
