Do ghosts wait until people aren't fully conscious to visit them, or is it that the state of semi-consciousness is prone to creating ghosts? I have had dreams that seemed very real, right up to the moment of waking, and I've noticed that many ghost sightings occur when someone wakes up in the middle of the night to find a ghost there.
Draw from that what conclusions you may.
It usually takes me an hour to fall asleep. The noises I hear at night happen when I'm fully awake, and I know I'm not dreaming because things will actually be in another spot when I go to check on them (I always put my car keys on a hook on the wall so I'll know to grab them the next morning, sometimes they'll end up on the ground). But you're right, sometimes your subcconscious does play tricks on you. I had a semi-awake dream when I was a kid and saw a decapitated woman's head floating next to my bed. I've written that off as my imagination being over active while falling asleep.
