But make sure you google out for plausible solutions before asking it here. If you still find it hard to follow, there are many people who could help you here.

zonk out: a state of fatigue, due to which a person may fall asleep quickly, or may look tired and worn-out. A lesser extreme variation of 'passing out'.
