★★★ Guide

I've seen this before but it's been a while.


1. Make sure there are no radios playing.  I used to play lullabies for my children and toddlers, but now it keeps them awake.  Frown

2. Look for other nearby noisy items.


What I ended up doing:


Ineffective but expesses your annoyance:  Pause the game and queue up sleep over and over again until their queue is completely full.  Then when they wake up continuously they just go back to bed.  Repeat as necessary until their energy bar is full. 


Better:  Reload the lot.  I got one of my perpetually exhausted, refused to sleep Sims to sleep through the night on the first try by going to manage worlds, then back to his household.

@TrinityBabe I think it’s something about the apartments cause only my apartment sims do it

@TrinityBabe I suspect there is an issue when you move a sim into your household using the "Ask to move in", interaction. Sometimes the system doesn't completely recognize the new sim as a new member of the household. Meaning, the system thinks the new sim is a visitor "doing something inappropriate" (sleeping in bed) and is forcibly trying to kick them off the lot, but can't.
