Through manipulation of a sleeping person’s mind, the mage can send her target into a deeper sleep and ensure that he remain oblivious to the outside world, or she can wake him instantly.

Mechanics: If the mage so desires, the target of this spell wakes instantly. If he is under a supernatural effect that prevents him from waking, the number of successes on the spell must exceed the Potency of that effect.

A sleeping target could also be made to wake up at even the slightest sound or disturbance.

If the mage wishes to keep the target asleep, each success on the casting levies a one-die penalty to any perception rolls he makes to awaken whenever something disturbs him (sounds, people sneaking past his bed, someone trying to remove his locket, etc.).

The successes also act as the spell’s Potency when contesting another mage’s use of Control Waking or other, similar supernatural effects.
