You Can Sleep SKSE Remake

Recommended Posts

Discussion topic:
You Can Sleep SKSE Remake by underthesky (Original LE), Dropkicker (SSE port)
Wiki Link

This is a rare and extremely extremely nasty bug in Skyrim engine.

The most notorious reproduction of it is getting the message “you can’t wait while being asked to leave” , “Cannot wait/sleep while being asked to leave... my own home”in some locations owned by you or your factions.

It's not a load order and mod conflict or typing some "ownership command" that will fix it.


The most notorious places where it triggers after days of game play are:

1. Dawnstar Sanctuary after completing DarkBrotherhoodSanctuaryRepair quest. (happened to 4 times)

2. College of Winterhold. (reported)

3. Hearthfire Houses. (reported)

Fortunately there is a fix to it using engine functions:

You Can Sleep SKSE Remake 


There is a configuration file for DLL mod:


that can be edited by a text editor.

In my case I only activate a single line (3th line):

  "allowSleepAndWaitInAir": false,
  "allowSleepAndWaitTrespassing": false,
  "allowSleepAndWaitAskedToLeave": true,
  "allowSleepAndWaitGuardsPursuing": false,
  "allowSleepAndWaitEnemiesNearby": false,
  "allowSleepAndWaitTakingHealthDamage": false,
  "allowSleepAndWaitOwned": false,
  "allowSleepAndWaitInUse": false

Regardless of whether or not this mod works, it is not updated for the Anniversary Edition as of yet. The author does appear to be updating their other mods for Anniversary Edition, so it does look possible that this shall receive an update.

The mod works (personal experience) and the code is clear and free sources by the original author.

If you visit the oldrim page you see a post from someone called fadingsignal asking for a SSE port (he isn't aware that it was ported to SSE some years ago).


P.S. unfortunately Skyrim AE isn't going to be stabilized until some further months and it bring more issues than it solves.

Version compatible with Anniversary Edition has been released some days ago.

I learned this from a link provided in the nexus page of Racemenu.

(not to say that I'm using AE)


YouCanSleep AE v1.0.1ae


Highly recommended Core mod in my opinion.

Edited using Step Tool and added another Reddit topic.

A user posted the following comment in nexus LE page:

One might say that they can't ask you to leave if they're dead but skyrim would disagree.

The bug drove me made in Dawnstar Sancturay happening suddenly after a week or two after completing the upgrade of the sanctuary.

      Following a clean re-install of Skyrim AE, I've been reinstalling the Step Guide and had intended to include everything. Because of this I have installed the ENB options in all the steps prior to Post Processing. Now I'm not so sure I want to install/run an ENB with this build. Is it safe to jump to Step 05 or do I need to remove and reinstall the mods with the Post Processing (blue) flag? I am getting between 91-115 FPS in Riften with my new 144 Hz monitor.

      Hi! I have been trying to mod my Skyrim game for a couple of days now and I have been meticulosly following the STEP Skyrim Special Editio Guidelines and I have finally arrived to step 6.24.2. I already finished sorting the plugins with LOOT and already finished the standar cleaning procedures. Now I have to proceed with the performance benchmark which requires to launch the game for the first time after downloading and installing all the mods. Now here is the problem: When launching Skyrim, it will open, it shows the logo and a little loading animation on the bottom right, and it closes itself after a couple of seconds -No error pop ups or anything. I am pretty new when it comes to modding and I have no idea of what could be causing this problem, and I would love to fix this instead of uninstalling everything and retrying in a couple of months.
      Thank a lot beforehand!

      SKSE plugin with customizable JSON configuration.
      QOL: Disables collision between player and NPCs so that they don't push the player or block narrow passages.
      The description on the Nexus mod page is very short and rather vague:
      What this does exactly is disabling collision so the NPCs are no longer solid: they can walk through the player and vice-versa. They'll still get in your face while you're in a conversation, or clump together stuck in passageways. So it's not perfect, but it's much better than vanilla.
      The following NPCs and situations are addressed:
      Disables collision while the player is in dialogue. Disables collision between the player and their allies. Disables collision between the player and their summons. Disables collision between the player and their allies' summons. Each of the above can be turned on or off via configuration settings (all ON by default).
