American Sign Language: "sleep"

The sign for "sleep" is made by opening your hand and placing it in front of your face, palm toward you.  Move your hand downward toward your chin.  While the hand is moving, bring your fingers together and touch them with your thumb. 


Note: You don't actually touch your chin. Your hand ends up in front of your chin (or even lower).  This DOESN'T use a "fist" or "S" hand.  It uses a flattened-"O" handshape similar to the ending handshape of the "AND" sign.
