The use of SLEEP is prevented with more than eight other players in a room:

There are far too many people here for you to fall asleep.

Sleeping adds a line at the beginning of the LOOK description:

>look person
Person appears to be sleeping.
You see Person.
He appears to be a Dwarf.
[...]

At least one action is possible while unconscious, but most will be prevented:

>sit
That is impossible to do while unconscious!
>north
That is impossible to do while unconscious!
>yawn
That is impossible to do while unconscious!
>roll
You roll over in your sleep.
Roundtime: 2 sec.

This unconsciousness can be voluntarily ended with use of WAKE:

>wake
You wake up from your slumber.

It can also be ended for external reasons, causing Roundtime for both disturber and disturbee:

>poke sleepy
Sleepy awakens startled.
Roundtime: 3 sec.
You poke Sleepy in the ribs.
You awake from a dream startled.  You are sitting down.
Roundtime: 3 sec.
Meany pokes you in the ribs.
