In this scenario, if you have a partner in a double bed, you probably may have trouble.

This is a huge problem in service for more like a bug when your Sims can’t share the bed if the bed is against the wall.

Keep in mind on a double bed your position is pre-decided and in Sim 4 sim won’t sleep on the wrong side.

All you need to do is to cancel the NAP sequence and then while the first sim is still sitting on the bed you need to make your second sim take a nap on their side.

Once they will shift over and take a nap and then your first sim can go to sleep back 


FIX 2 – Turn Off TV and Radio

Any noise either from your room or coming from another than your sims 4 sims won’t fall asleep. Kindly try switching off all the noise-creating sources like TV, radio, earbuds, and also stop if any baby is crying or yelling.

You need to be practical as this also happens in real life, many people can’t sleep if some noise or sound is playing nearby to them.

Please check all devices and make sure there is a pin drop of silence.


FIX 3 – Turn Off Lights Completely

You might be thinking that this is just a basic step and most of us do this but I am also sure that most of them also make mistakes here.

They as usual switch off all the lights but miss a few of them and that few can come between your sim and precious sleep.

Make sure to switch off all the sources of lights like ceiling lights, lamps, bulbs, and computer screens.

Just double-check all of them and try again to see if your sim goes to sleep now.


FIX 4 Room not Closed

There are many bedrooms where there are no doors and have only aches that can be a reason behind sim won’t sleep.

So if the room is not completely closed there can be some sound and lights coming in from other parts of the house.

Few users suggested that this was a cause in their case in Sim 4 sim won’t sleep issues.

Better work on it or have proper doors.



FIX 5 – Pets keeping Sim awake

As you may have tried a couple of options and so if nothing is working then you also need to make sure that the pet is not barking or meowing.

If pets are making noises your Sims 4 sim won’t sleep, so you need to scold pets.

You can do this by selecting the pet and then choosing the option of Scold/lecture for waking up.

Once done try again and check if your sim goes to sleep.


FIX 6 – Bad Relationship with SIN you are sharing a bed

Most of the beginners make mistakes here as you must know that in order to sleep with another sim you need to ask them first to be your Girlfriend or Boyfriend.

If you already have a partner then assure you have a good relationship with them.

Keep healthy relationships and any arguments or high complications can also be the cause behind sims 4 sim won’t sleep with a partner.

If you feel something then sort it out and then try again. You can also try getting more information on cheats sims relationships.


FIX 7 – Delete the Bed

Deleting a bed and then creating again with a new position also helped many SIM 4 unresponsive sim sleeping issues and glitches.

After trying a couple of methods you can also give it a try with this fix a well.

You can delete the bed by selecting it or by opening the cheat console using the (ctrl shift c) key.

Once the bed is removed try to place it in a different position where it should not be placed against the wall and should be easily accessible from both sides.


FIX 8 – Make Sim travel

This is another pro tip from my pro friend who fixed his problem by just moving Sim out of the house to another world.

So what you need to do, take your sim out of the house then come back again, and then probably your issue of not sleeping will be fixed.

You can do this by opening a Sim cell phone and then looking for a travel option.

Additionally, you can also try resetting your Sim, if nothing works.


FIX 9 – Delete Mods

Sims 4 sim won’t sleep and other glitches can also be because of having too many mods and custom content.

To enhance game features you might be using too many mod scripts which can mess some of your settings or game files.

Try deleting mods and custom content (cc) that you recently installed.

If not sure try deleting all of them and this will let you know what was creating the problems.


FIX 10 – Restart Game and Device

If you are still wondering about the solution, try restarting your game or better restart your PC or PS.

Maybe the above solution you tried worked but needs a restart. Restarting the game and device will fix any temporary issues and will even implement the changes done by you.

I covered this at the last only because restart becomes more effective after applying all the solutions.
