[RPG] Can the sleep spell wake me up


Does one notice being affected by the sleep spell?

The reason I ask is because I want to ensure someone who is already asleep via natural means will not wake up for the next 60 seconds. To do so, I will cast sleep on the already sleeping target(s).

Might the target be awoken by this action if the sleep spell fails to take effect?

This spell sends creatures into a magical slumber. Roll 5d8; the total is how many hit points of creatures this spell can affect. Creatures within 20 feet of a point you choose within range are affected in ascending order of their current hit points (ignoring unconscious creatures). Starting with the creature that has the lowest current hit points, each creature affected by this spell falls unconscious until the spell ends, the sleeper takes damage, or someone uses an action to shake or slap the sleeper awake.

A sleeping creature is considered unconscious (as the spell's effect suggests). Therefore, your sleeping target is not affected by the spell.
