sleeperson

noun; blending and clipping
A sleepy person. This is a type of word that was formed out of the laziness of speech. Because my friend wanted a word to describe being a sleepy person, she blended the two words together. It’s also a silly sounding word, so it has caught on among many others as a clever word to use to describe your sleepiness.
 
I’ve been a sleeperson all morning since I stayed up all night.
Etymology : sleepy clipped to sleep blended with person
