Do you feel as if you have been sleeping most of your life? If so, do you feel that you are somehow possible to be awakened? What do you think; what would make you awaken?
Or do you feel as if you will forever sleep, never to be awakened? Do you grasp the transient state between one to another? Do you feel as if you are being more sleepy as the time passes? Are there certain places that will be able to awaken you? Certain conditions; environments; that will make you more awake or less?
Do you think that this feeling of sleeping while awake could be a symptom that you aren't precisely in the place in the world that you ought to be -- to be awakened? Or are there different days in your life time as you feel as if you are feeling more awake than default; or that some days you feel more sleepy?
Do you feel that if somebody else is sleeping like this; even if you don't do it; that you are able to somehow awaken them? If so, how do you think you will be able to awaken them? Do you want them to perceive the world in a more awakened form, or do you want to put them to sleep if you are feeling asleep like this?
I know that my definition of "sleeping while awake" is slightly vague but I have a hard time putting it down in words what I want to say. Hopefully you'll understand what I mean.
