I have woken up in sleep paralysis before(though I always refer to it my head as lassitude). I have however always been able to force my body to move...its just far more difficult, similar to what I amagine coming out of a coma would feel like. I seem to have control over my dreams as well...at least once I am aware they are dreams, I can force things to happen...but just like lassitude its difficult to derail the script. Another odd thing I can do is wake up on time every time with no alarm, which is a handy trick since it means I dont have to wake my wife when working early hours. From what I understand most people are unable to for whatever reason.
