Our expert says:
It is completely normal to wake, roughly every 90 minutes. Mostly, we don't remember it. What seems to be happening is that he becomes aware of it, and then thinks that he has had enough sleep. Then he falls asleep in front of the TV.
He needs to understand that waking is normal, and it can take up to 20 minutes to fall asleep again.
He is really getting into some bad habits there, which could get worse over time.
If things do not settle down, he might need to see a sleep doctor. But first let him try just getting back into bed and relaxing.
