* In ''SecondhandLions'', the warning is more for the safety of the person waking the sleepwalker, than that of the sleepwalker himself. When Walter tries to wake his sleepwalking great-uncle Hub, his other great-uncle Garth pulls Walter's hand back and says, "Don't. Last time I tried to wake him he nearly tore my head off."

* ''Literature/TheEyesOfTheDragon'': Discussed and averted near the end of the story. During the night Peter attempts his escape, Thomas sleepwalks again and ends up in the secret passage, where he wakes up due to a tower named The Church of the Gods collapsing because of a storm. The narrator points out that in Delain people still believe that waking a sleepwalker before they get back to their bed will cause them to go mad, but Thomas proves this is not the case since he only has a bad scare about waking up in the passage but quickly realizes where he is.

* 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''".

* Conversely, there have been cases of sleepwalkers reacting violently when loved ones have tried to wake them up, even going so far as to kill people without even coming close to waking up. For this reason, it is recommended that those encountering a sleepwalker should gently guide them back to bed rather than try to rouse them.

* Averted in the Russian series ''Wolf Messing: Seeing through Time''. Wolf's mother is concerned that he walks in his sleep and doesn't respond to her voice. When she speaks of it to her rabbi, he explains that Wolf is a sleepwalker and tells her to fill a container with water and place it by the window, where Wolf sleepwalks to every night. This should snap him out of it. It works, although Wolf is confused why he's standing ankle-deep in water.
