My hedgehog isn't using her wheel!!

I'm getting kind of worried about her amount of exercise. She wakes up around 2AM and I put her in a partitioned off portion of my room that is hedgie-proof but she seems more content to run around, while ignoring her wheel completely. Is there something wrong with her? I'm fairly certain she isn't getting the normal 4 miles of running a night. THanks in advance for any help!

My hedgie never uses the wheel if I have it out in the playpen with him. He'll only use it when he's in complete darkness and silence inside of his cage. You do have the wheel inside her cage as well right? Because most would rather explore and roam when they're out of their cage. But when they're inside their cage, lights are all off, then it's definate wheel time.
