Is sleepwalking an explanation?

this probably does not belong into the paranormal category, and maybe not on ATS at all. So I'll keep it short, it's also always an effort for me to speak or write in english language:

Something unusual has happened last night. Either somebody came into my appartment while I was sleeping, or I left my appartment while I was sleeping. Not via astral beam, but through the door. It's ridiculous, but at the moment, and after thinking about it for hours, the facts and circumstances lead me to the assumption that I sleepwalked, which scares me as much as the thought of a possible intruder (Who obviously did or steal nothing). I can't find a third explanation.

Now my question is:

Can a sleepwalker find his keys, or let's say put on his shoes? Finally find the way back into his bed? I must have found and worn my houseshoes, otherwise my feet should have been dirty...

I presume you find this story insane and/or just boring. Be assured that I'm not writing this in fun. Any feedback is appreciated, but hopefully I won't catch too many "consult a doctor" -style responses.

An insane story? Not at all. I would ask though what your age is it is very common from 4-12 (from referenced website) I sleptwalked a lot until I was 16. My Mom told me that one time I came down stairs, fixed a sandwich told her to go to bed, and then I went back upstairs. (My Mom suffered from insomnia, reason she was awake)
Anyway I am including this website for you --you may have already found it, if not, it is a good read.

Insane story............not in the slightest!!!!

My brother used to sleep walk up until the age of 15 then he started to grow out of it.
He would wake up in the early hours of the morning and get dressed for school and his clothes were in his draws and he could find them and put them on perfectly without a light on.
I could also have a conversation with him and he would reply as if he was awake, then in the morning would wonder why he had his clothes on and would not remember anything he had done or me talking with him.
It got a bit scarry when one night he tried to climb out of our bedroom window.....which was about thirty foot up.......then my parents put window locks on all the windows.

He doesnt sleep walk now and still doesnt remember ever doing so.

Thanks NetStorm,

I must admit that I didn't do any research on sleepwalking, mainly because I don't like the thought of being afflicted, and I focused more on finding proof for another -and more convincing- explanation.
But I know that I often speak while sleeping, so maybe I have reached the next level now, the sandwich incident you mentioned supports this theory.
I'm 29 years old- according to the referenced article, I'm "more likely" to have the disorder for the rest of my life, and "the frequency and severity of incidents" increases with age. I hope the last only applies to people who started sleepwalking in their adolescence.

And thanks Mindwalker-

I realize now that my personal definition of sleepwalking was way off. I will take precautions now to see if I do it again, even though I still have great ploblems accepting that I did it last night.
