The onset of sleep (SOL), which is called the time it takes a person to go from fully awake to asleep, depends on a few things, and most often of all, how tired you are. If you feel extremely exhausted, you may fall asleep quickly, but if it was a relaxing day for you, then it may take some time to nap. This is another reason why you fall asleep quickly during weekdays and find it difficult to close your eyes on the weekend. But this is not always the case, sometimes you may be extremely exhausted and still twist and turn the bed, this is due to insomnia and other problems.
People who are fast asleep do not remember exactly what happened minutes before they fall asleep and may not be able to recall it at all. This is known as mesograft amnesia. According to some researchers, mesograft amnesia is the result of a sleep spindle or an outburst of activity in the hippocampus of your brain during the transition from wakefulness to sleep.
