My hedgehog is like this after about 9pm. She will run laps around my (hedgie proof room) for literally 2 hours, running through tubes, pushing around balls and dragging blankets around until she stops to eat. If I sit on the floor with her she'll take an interest that I'm there and run up to me and head but me or crawl on to my lap, but she's perfectly fine when I read a book or watch a movie. Just sit with your hedgehog while he runs
If I take Persephone out around 6pm all she wants to do is curl up in a cuddle sack and sleep. So maybe try taking your hedgie out at a time that is out of the normal routine and you might get him to sleep on your lap.
