The state into which a person will sometimes enter after s/he goes to bed and prior to the point at which s/he has fully entered sleep. It should be considered a highly comedic state of being for spectators but ultimately harmless for the person in question. Indicative but indefinite symptoms include but are not limited to random topic conversation, slurring of speech, and the mumbling of thoughts of random with closed eyes.
"Hey, look at Bob. He is mumbling about macaroni cops and gold-tipped oompa-loompas with his eyes closed. That's funny; he must be aswake...or high."
"John is aswake."
