Underlying Cause of Sleepiness?

What about a natural approach, such as putting a cooling vest or scarf, or cooling the room around him to keep him just cool enough that he doesn’t want to fall asleep? Is he getting enough sleep when he does rest, or has he been checked for sleep apnea problems or other underlying causes of his sleepiness, which may be the source of the problem in need of treatment (APAP machine)?
