If you are practicing satipatthana then I reckon you have your work cut out for you. Keep in mind that Dhamma practice should be something that we can sustain day-in day-out for years and decades. Its a long-term project.
In time, you will naturally begin to develop greater awareness during sleep. That will happen as a natural bi-product of sustained effort on and off the cushion.
You may get to a point where you will be able to meditate while your body is resting in sleep mode.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
