Default Light sleeper-Any tips?

My lil hedgie Zepplin is quite the light sleeper. It seems as if she never really gets restful sleep. She’ll only fall asleep to we’re I can pick her up with out waking her around once or twice a week. And whenever I walk in the room or check on her in her cage she’s laying in her little igloo, but she jumps up. So if she’s sleeping she probably in a light state of it. She heats plenty of rest time. I’m at school for around 7 hours and whenever I hold her she’s usually just chilling with me in her snuggle sack when I do hmwk. She’s in great health, vet said she’s doing fine (we’re taking care of the ear problem from a recent post).Little over weight but we’re taking care of it. I was just wondering if there are any tips/tricks I can use to help her get a more restful/deeper sleep. She already has a heat light and maintains a temp around 75 F.

I didnt think that they did go into deep sleeps unless in hibernation becase they are prey animals so naturally they keep an ear out incase of anything happening
