      Blackout like sleep state

      Sorry if this has been said before but I am having trouble with it so I am looking for help. I believe this arose from going lucid, and just observing the dream, instead of taking control (but i may be wrong). I have no problem with dream control, dream signs, etc, but recall and lucidity has been an issue more recently. I almost always enter a lucid dream upon first going to sleep, but it often fades away into a void like, black out state. I wake up in the morning with the feeling I had a lot of dreams, some times I can even recall images of really vivid/intense dreams. But I still remain in that black out like state where I can't remember, or even tell what I was dreaming about. I can even be fully lucid, and everything will just fade away.

      Could this be a comfort thing? maybe i just slip off into a very relaxed sleep state? All I know is that I am having many, many, many dreams that I am not remembering, or able to become aware of while sleeping.

      I am having trouble explaining this sensation, but I will try to elaborate more if I can.

      Your dreams (aka REM sleep) happen later in the night. Dreams can occur before REM sleep, but they are often short and not very vivid. The short dreams are probably what you are experiencing since you said you enter dreams rights when you go to bed. Try setting an alarm for later in the night and going from there.

      First REM happens after about 80 min of sleep and lasts in average about 10 min.
