I am looking for a word that describes the state just before a person slips into sleep. I am not talking about the state when the person is inactive or sedentary, but specifically in reference to sleep. The last two minutes before you go out.

The state of being almost asleep is sometimes referred to as "dozing" or "dozing off".


"He was just dozing off when a noise startled him".
