    Dream of/Dream about

    In the dictionary I have found :
    To experience a dream in sleep: dreamed of meeting an old friend.
    In an other book I have read
    Last night I dreamed about being alone on desert island.

    Which one is correct dream about or dream of when i talk about dream in sleep?

    I remember somebody told me that dream of is more comun to be used in day dream, does it make sense?

    NOT A TEACHER.

    Both are correct. "Of" sounds a tad more formal to me than "about."
