"I don't sleep well anymore."

Sleep was a biological process engaged in by many beings, both sentient and non-sentient, such as humans for the purpose of rest and rejuvenation. Sentient beings that slept generally did so according to a set routine and often utilized a comfortable piece of furniture, such as a bed, for the purpose.[1] During sleep, many beings experienced dreams, nighttime visions that often played out as fantastical versions of things they had seen in real-life. A lack of sleep could have deleterious effects on one's psyche.[2]

After Anakin Skywalker began experiencing Force visions during sleep of his mother, Shmi Skywalker Lars, dying, he began having trouble sleeping.[2] He later experienced this same problem after witnessing a Force vision during sleep of his wife Padmé Amidala dying in childbirth. Darth Sidious killed his master, Darth Plagueis, in his sleep.[3]

Although droids, as mechanical beings, could not sleep, it was possible for at least some to "power down," experiencing a similar state in which they were not active, but could be brought back to an active state at moment's notice.[4]

Some users of the Force could use their powers to sedate, as Qui-Gon Jinn demonstrated on Jar Jar Binks,[5] or even to induce sleep and render a person unconscious, as Kylo Ren demonstrated on Rey.[6]
