MICROSLEEP

is the process of entering incredibly short periods of very light sleep which typically occur whilst undergoing monotonous tasks which have been completed habitually before, hence requiring the least amount of attention.

MICROSLEEP: "Those on active duty within armies, tend to attempt microsleeping, which involves short naps when they are possible in order to stave of fatigue."
