    He was sound asleep, or he slept like a log, or he was sawing wood, or he slept like a baby, or he slept like the dead.....

    She slept like a log that she didn't hear her dorm mates came in last night.

    I thought she was sleeping like a baby, but then, she suddenly jump up and scared me to death.

    The robber broke in her room and stole all her jewelry but she was sleeping like the dead.

    When they noticed that they were robbed, they blamed the security guard for lying sound asleep.

    * Please check my sentences. Thanks!

    And while I'm done surfing that's when you're wide awake.
