    it is called a "snore"
    I could hear Paul snoring in the next room.
    She lay awake listening to his snores.

    such a person is called a 'snorer'

    make a noise is the correct usage.
    However, make a noise about something means to complain about something
    She's been making a lot of noise about moving to a new house.

    I mean that I don't snore, no matter how much my husband tells me I do! I think he just dreams that I make those noises.
