My husband talk in his sleep and at time he wakes up, dress up and start searching for car and door keys(as i hide them for him not to sleep walk outside for safety reason) If he hides the keys himself, during his sleep walk he retrive them . During his sleep walk he even moves the valuables around in the house. What is the course of this and is there cure for it?
