Default suddenly hiding a lot?

my hedgehog used to be quite active in her cage. now she is only active when i have her out. when i put her back in her cage she goes in her hut. if she doesnt come out after an hour like she usually does i take her hut out and then she eats and runs on her wheel like normal. i dont know if this is cause im staying up later or what. it has got colder where i live but i keep a space heater at 78 degrees and bought a more direct heat source to put above her cage. i checked her belly and she doesnt feel cold. any suggestions on what to do or may be causing this?

Do you know the temperature right in the cage? If you have the lights on when you're up late and she's in the same room that's probably the reason. Most hedgehogs won't come out when there are lights on or if people are around.
