From Minecraft Wiki

Sleeping (or Sleep Mode) is a game mechanic that can be activated by Players under certain circumstances.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Sleeping in a Bed will gradually cause a player's vision to fade to black, followed by them regaining consciousness at Dawn.

Limitations[edit | edit source]

Sleeping is only possible by meeting the following criteria:

  • It must be either Nighttime or during a Thunderstorm in the Daytime.
  • The bed can only be in the overworld.
  • There must be no hostile Mobs nearby.
  • All players within the Minecraft world must also be lying in a bed, if in a multiplayer situation, in order to skip to daytime.
    • There are data packs that require only one player to sleep in a bed in order for the server to skip to the day.
  • Only one player can sleep in each bed at a time.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Villagers can sleep in beds as of 1.14.
  • The reason beds explode in The Nether and The End is because Notch found it was the easiest solution to dimension-unique respawning.
    • Respawn Anchors explode in a identical fashion to beds, when the anchors are placed in the overworld or the End.
