That is fairly common with lupus, particularly if you are taking prednisone. I know taking a sleep aid kinda' sounds like the opposite of what you want to do, since you can't wake up.
I used to sleep almost 18 hours a day and always feel exhausted. Once I talked with my doctor, he prescribed a sleep aid -- and the first day I took it I woke up refreshed, which I hadn't done in years!
The goal is deep restorative sleep, which it sounds like you aren't getting -- please talk with your doctor!
