    He fell asleep

    I think "fall asleep" is equal to "go to sleep", both of which mean "going into the state of sleeping", but "slept" is the duration of sleeping, so it's quite different from the first two. Isn't it?

    gr8
    ex)He fell asleep(went to sleep != slept) with his glasses on.

    Yes, it is different, as you say.
