I have the same issue as the original poster in this thread, my Sims all wake up when the dad starts work at 6 a.m. That's four toddlers that wake up without filling their energy bar. When dad gets home from work they are exhausted, needing attention and fun-deprived. Not hungry, though. It's really annoying. They should stay asleep until their energy bar is full.

Sims at home fail to stay in bed when family member goes out

★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.56.52.1020 (64 bit)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all official DLC
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Requires family with multiple sims. Put all of them except one or two (possibly happens with more too) to bed and wait for the sims in bed to fall asleep. Then travel with the awake sims to any other lot.
What happens when the bug occurs? All sims that stay at home are suddenly awake (their portrait background switches to a normal emotion colour from the dark blue sleep background) and don't take care of their needs (meaning they'll be dead tired, but won't stay in or go to bed to sleep), BUT their needs appear to be frozen until I return to the lot.
What do you expect to see? I expect sims who are in bed to stay in bed until their energy need is resolved, and to not get up prematurely unless they have to go to work or school (or for an emergency).
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

Sims that were asleep in bed used to stay asleep when I travelled away from the lot. Since I haven't played for a few months I'm unsure when this changed. Been testing this with a few different families and it appears to be a persistent problem with all sims that get left at home - even pets. They all get woken up as soon as I leave the lot. And the "care for self" remote control command apparently doesn't cause them to actually take care of their needs.

 

With my one family where the one sim is a vampire it gets really annoying because she's obviously up at night while the others sleep, and I'm used to using that time to let her feed and have fun. It used to not be a problem, but now her night time adventures mean the rest of the family, especially the kids, never get any sleep before they have to go to work/school.

I don't know if my save file also experiencing sims wake up after one of the family members leave the residential lot, but I notice the "Care for Self" option ain't working properly. Their needs going low, energy, fun, social, hygiene, all won't get filled even the bars turned red. The same thing happens in high school where their bladder bar drops so low, I need to make them "leave earlier" to avoid any problem.

@TheSteelRodent I merged your post with existing thread

 

@AndyZhang2896 That sounds more like this fixed issue: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/OPEN-Care-for-Self-for-Sims-at-different-lot-not-properly/td-p...

 

You're on PC, right ?

 

Would you be willing to share your save where you still see this ?
