Smile sleeping too much?

For the past couple months I have notice Sage is sleeping more and more. She will sleep for up to 48 hours straight now. Not even getting up to eat or to go to the bathroom.
when she finally does get up , she eats a lot and drinks normally. her belly is warm , so I do not think it is hibernation. Everything seems to be normal with her except that she used to get up every night and for like an hour in the daytime , to not getting up for 48 hours . Is this not good or do some hedgehogs need more sleep?

That's not normal. What temperature is her cage? What food is she eating? When you get her up what does she do? Does she run on her wheel at night? How light is the room she is in at night. If there's too much light she may not want to get up. How old is she?

Her cage is always above 72 F . And she has always been fine with that temp. She eats a mixture of Newmans own organic cat food and sunseed hedgehog food. When she gets up she runs around my room normally , until she balls up and goes to sleep. I do sleep with my TV on a lot. But that is the only light in the room. She is almost 3 years old.
