Definition of Sleepwalking:

An episode of being 'asleep, yet awake', usually occurring 1 or 2 hours after falling asleep and lasting for up to 30 minutes.  The term 'Sleepwalking' does not only include walking; other activities may occur also, from the innocent (sitting up in bed, going to the bathroom, cooking) to the serious (driving a car, killing someone).  More common in children, it is often indicative of underlying disease in adults.
