I was just wondering if sleepwalking is real or just a myth locked in movies and cartoons?I haven't heard of any real incidents. Share your knowledge about this and also if anyone could give me some incidents it would be nice. Thanks in advance.

it is not a myth! Sleepwalking (also called noctambulism or somnambulism), under the larger category of parasomnias, is a sleep disorder where the sufferer engages in activities that are normally associated with wakefulness while asleep or in a sleeplike state. see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleepwalking

I actually watched a reality tv show last night, and I was amazed by the fact that you can use sleepwalking as a defense for murdering his parents... the verdict was not guilty..the defendant got away with a crime that has been done while he was asleep.
