Hate to break it to you OP, but maybe YOU are the problem. It doesn't sound like she is into you.
I recommend unannounced anal sex. If that doesn't wake her up nothing will. Good luck.

I was on the wrestling team in HS and played sports, street hockey and was an AVID bike rider. I would bike 15-20 miles a day plus lifting weights. I weight 150 pounds. After all, was said and done I lost 32 pounds down to 118 pounds. I was scary thin. It took me months to fully recover.

Diabetes can do this too. She eats food, her blood sugar levels spikes and puts her to sleep. Get her Dr to check her A1C levels. Its a inexpensive test.

If she is the sort that resists this....feed her steak and eggs sometime (low carb foods) and see if she stays awake. Next time feed her pasta and see if she crashes.

That's really the only good advice so far in this thread. We can sit here and speculate for weeks on end, but until she seeks professional help, it's all for naught. Sleeping too much is a symptom of a lot of things.

I agree, Joe.
I think it's great you're concerned. Doesn't sound normal at all.
Sleeping is definitely a symptom of depression but it could be other things. Lymes disease, for instance.
She should be seen. Once she dozes off in the car, drive her to the Dr's.

It could be Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, also known as M.E. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chronic_fatigue_syndrome I had it in the late 80s and I could not ever get enough sleep. I was exhausted night and day with a sore throat and fever. It's like chronic mononucleosis which ordinarily lasts 6 weeks, but mine lasted for 6 months and then another 5 years of relapses. I am so glad those days are behind me - it was really awful. I hope she sees a doctor to find out what is wrong. Her need for that amount of sleep is not normal, and as others have said, it could be depression or other serious physical ailments.

Winter Hibernation- Yes Humans can also hibernate. I know my Brain does !

Seriously though, some persons are more apt to be sleep prone during stress or body changes....

I absolutely LOVE to sleep!
