Is this an AS Trait

Seth seems to not know when he is tired and falling asleep. He takes meds to help him sleep at night that counteract the adderall he takes in the day. He will come out with his eyes half closed and barely able to walk and ask for a snack. I've have seen him at times sit and sleep with a bowl of ice cream on his lap, sometimes waking enough to take another bite. If you try to move him he will barely open his eyes and take a bite and then drift off again. I don't know if he is so entrenched into his routine of having ice cream after dinner just before bed, or is the inability to know how tired he is a trait of the AS.

Cait doesn't do quite that specifically, but she will get horribly cranky and have an "A" day (code for particularly autistic) Almost everytime she gets like that she will all of a sudden just crash and take a huge nap at some point.
