How to fix Sons of the Forest sleep bug

Sleep at a different spot

We encountered the sleep bug in Sons of the Forest after making significant progress in the game. No matter how many times we slept at our camp, we still saw the “you are tired” notification on the screen. However, we solved the issue by sleeping in a different spot. Therefore, build another small shelter, such as the one made from a Trap and two sticks, and try sleeping in it.

Restart the game

Restarting the game can help fix multiple issues, including the inventory bug. But before doing that, make sure you save your game first, as you will lose your progress otherwise. After saving, quit the game and start it again. Try sleeping one more time to see if the problem has been fixed or not.

Update the game

Ensure that you have the latest version of the update installed. Sometimes, players forget to update their game and keep playing as it is. However, the developers can introduce fixes for multiple bugs in the updates, so you should make sure that you have the latest patch installed.
