chextra  Isn't REM a rather light sleep stage? Brain waves during REM are very similar to awake states. I think you even wake up briefly in the middle of REM sleep. I don't think FA gave me a great understanding of narcolepsy, but I see it as going from awake to REM (light) for any kind of sleep, daytime or night time. +  
sammyj98  I'm definitely not ace on this subject, but I think the brain waves present in REM are similar to wakefulness because of the dreaming component. I think of it as though the brain has to go through a process of hypnotizing the body into a state of relaxation, and then properly paralyzing it, and then it can simulate wakefulness (dreaming) to go through with it's defragging of the hard drive. So REM is actually the deepest sleep because the body is fully paralyzed. Please someone correct me, this is probably an inacurrate perspective. +4  
pg32  FA says that narcolepsy has nocturnal AND NARCOLEPTIC sleep episodes that start with REM sleep... So is @drdoom correct? FA seems to disagree regarding the daytime sleep pattern. +3
