Hard to know exactly what is happening here, without a proper examination and in-person assessment, so it would probably be helpful to take him to see a good local child shrink or paediatrician.
I'm trying to understand what you are describing. If he wakes during the night, how is it that his state is noticed ? are they checking on him frequently ? If he appears to be asleep, why are people talking to him or touching him ? Is he perhaps sleep-walking, or something like that? If he goes to sleep happy, and wakes in the morning happy - what is it about the middle of the night episodes that has attracted attention ? What happens if he is just left in bed to go back to sleep again ?
