working while still sleeping, somehow you manage to get the job done without being fully awake. Related to sleep walking and sleep talking, only you get paid. Not to be confused with other occupations involving getting paid for being in bed.
The tech support guys on the night shift were very adept at sleep working, the customers calling in never knew they were talking and typing with their eyes closed.

You are just kind of in a robot mode; able to perform the neccessary tasks required of you regardless of your current sleep deprivation.

Sleep-Working happens when you haven't had your morning cup of coffee before work, which usually results in ultimate failure and/or workers compensation.

Jim: "That poor bastard was Sleep-Working again."

Sleepworking is a condition that occurs after long junkets of effort -- several all nighters in a row, or even one all-nighter, if sufficiently intense. Sleepworking looks and talks and sounds like being awake and functioning, but the sleepworker really is asleep inside and not registering anything that is going on.
"After last night's deadline crunch, I can't believe I hit 'reply all' to that crack about the boss. I must have been sleepworking."
