This "sleep" has no consciousness. When a person is resurrected they are "awakened" out of their "sleep".
Return, O Lord, deliver me! Oh, save me for Your mercies’ sake! For in death there is no remembrance of You; In the grave who will give You thanks?
The dead do not praise the Lord, Nor any who go down into silence.
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work or device or knowledge or wisdom in the grave where you are going.
