Fall Asleep While Doing Homework/Assignment

Sims can now fall asleep while doing homework just like when they are eating.

Works on teens(homework) and young adults(assignment).
Sorry, doesn't work on children. (no animations)

Sims will fall asleep when their energy bar drops below 25%, and will stay asleep until it reaches 75%. However stereos, TVs, etc.. will wake them up before their energy bar gets to 75%. Can also be cancelled by clicking on the sims icon nested below the homework icon. Once they wake up they will resume doing their homework.

Great idea!! Do they get embarrassed like they did that on food plates?

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

This is so cute. For added realism it would be cool if both fun and energy had to be low for them to fall asleep.

Is this likely to conflict with any other homework/assignment hacks or any food-sleep hacks?

The only one I've found so far is Ailias' Doing homework by all the family! (+more fun) hack. There may be others I'm not aware of though.

Yes they should since they're using the same interaction.

this sounds great, and i'm dounloading now, but is there any way i can go into SimPE and change somthing to lower the sleep threshold? 25% sounds a bit high.

Yes, look for the behavior function Sub - Do Homework - Animate Table, there are two of them one is for homework the other for assignments. Now look for [prim 0x0002] Expression(My motive Energy <= Literal 0xFFCE), this is what you need to change. You will notice that 0xFFCE is equal to -50 in decimal, you may wonder how this can be 25%, well with motives the range is -100 to 100 where -100 is 0% and 100 is 100%. So lets say you want to change it to 10%, just multiply .10 by 200 then subtract 100 which would give you -20. Input the new value for the literal, commit and save.
