    Note:both the sentences have slightly different meaning and yes, both are correct.

    I agree with you Piscean I fell asleep while I was watching TV. While I was watching TV I fell asleep.
    Or we can use the non-finite ( watched TV, I fell asleep)

    Not a teacher

    Or we can use the non-finite ( watched TV, I fell asleep). No, we can't!

    Don't forget to add 'Not a teacher'.

    Not satisfied. Please read my question carefully please. All these answers don't belong to my question completely. I want to know which one is correct and why? And why? I want reason please. Why can't I use slept as a past(v2) form of verb? Why to use fell asleep? And what is difference in both sentences I mean with & without while? Please explain it well. I'd be grateful to you. Thanks.
