It also works againts you, if you're sleeping in the wilds and you and your companions get attacked, you wont wake up until the enemies are hitting you (but at least you actualy wake up).

Still in 0.47.05

A side effect is if you bypass the greeting you can then respond to your own conversation, and thus effectively talk to yourself.

You: What do you think of me?
You: I am a soldier. Can you lead me to battle and a warrior's death?
You: Can you tell me the way to Summerbuck?
You: Summerbuck is a half day's travel to the southeast. [You receive a detailed description.]

This can be used to argue with yourself and change your beliefs and even giv yourself new needs.

Jumping into a sleeper will wake them up, though possibly only if it causes them to move, and they may quickly go back to sleep.
