The LES, to the best of my knowledge, does not function with the same capacity during sleep. Hence, for those who eat or drink anything but water a few hours before bed or lying down; the LES will not be able to work at its best, increasing the risk of acid reflux.
This is why people are adviced not to eat 3 hours before bedtime.
