Babies sleep a lot. And he just went through a huge change, give him some time to adjust to his new surroundings.

What's the temperature at?

Mine won't come out if even the tv is on. I need to close the room door so that he is in completely darkness and silence for him to come out.

id say between 70-80F
That's an awfully large range. The temperature should be kept in a small (as in 74-76) kind of range. Some hedgies can start hibernating at 70, and some hedgies can aestevate(overheat, similar to hibernation, but not as deadly, but still dangerous) at 80.

Do you have a thermometer? What kind of heating device are you using?

Have you read through the stickies on this forum and done your research prior to getting your hedgie?

At 5 weeks old he should still be with his mother. Where did you get him from?

Don't have the TV on without a light on. The flashing from the TV in the dark can scare them. Having a light on minimizes the flashing of the TV. He'es had a big day so is probably tired. Count the kibble you give him to make sure he is eating.
