Sleepwalking: More common than you might think,0,2906288.story?track=rss

Scott has sleepwalked once. When he was a teenager, he dreamed he was fighting a terrible fire and woke up to find he was peeing on a pile of clothes.

Brian used to sleepwalk when he was very little. Brian's friend was on a business trip and was awoken by his co-worker who had sleepwalked over to his bed and was about to de-pants. He woke the sleeper up by saying "Can I help you?!". The guy woke up and realized he was recreating his nightly sleep ritual when at home. XD
