This thread has been going for some time! My anesthesia practice since 1977 has taught me a few things. At sleep, soft tissues in the upper airway tend to
loose support and can obstruct the upper airway= snoring. If you are "awake" you probably won't snore. If you are on your back and sleeping you can snore. If you are on your side or belly, you probably won't snore. So... if someone is asleep and snoring, awaken the person...or turn person to their side. I snore. I go to sleep on my side to keep my wife happy on that subject. As for sleep walking, I have no is rather poor form to have anyone anesthetized found to be walking about the operating room.
