comment Does the “Sleep” spell only affect creatures that are in range at the moment it is cast?
No, there's nothing to suggest OP is confusing duration and casting time. It might help if you refer back to the linked question to understand the origin of this question. It's a question of whether more targets can become affected if other constraints have not yet been met.

(cont.) Presumably, if the intent had been as I believe, any potential confusion could have been trivially avoided by making the spell instantaneous and specifying sleeping time in text. However, that would then also make it impossible to Dispel the effect. I do also have a concern that your interpretation makes it trivial to create a "sleeping trap". If that were intended, I would expect the text of the spell to make specific mention of creatures moving into the affected area. And then what would happen if a creature lost some HP while within the area?

This is a very interesting question (tbh I'm a little surprised at the lack of support). Instinctively (and probably influenced by my recollection of the spell in previous editions): I assumed the duration referred to how long the affected targets remained sleeping but the affected creatures had to be determined at time of casting. However, I have not yet been able to find anything concrete to confirm this.

comment Does the damage from unarmed strikes bypass non-magical/silvered/adamantine weapon resistance and immunity?
@xanderh I concede that RAW allows for falling or avalanches to ignore immunity and deal damage. But please don't be mistaken in thinking this makes anything clear. E.g. A bear's claw attacks are clearly nonmagical/non-silver so they suffer immunity and do 0 damage. But because falling damage ignores immunity, the bear can instead try to lift and throw the target or shove it down stairs or over a balcony. And suddenly the nonmagical claws "do damage".

comment Can the sleep spell wake me up?
I realised where your question was coming from when you asked it. As I said, I'm going to have to check when I get home. I believe the spell is not a concentration spell and that can play a part in how it behaves. However: I'd like to suggest you post that as brand new question. It is an interesting thought definitely worth getting more general feedback.

@Meta4ic Perfectly true. However a there's a concern OP expressed in the original version of the question which has lost significance in the edits: part of the reason for the question was that OP wanted to find out if creatures whose hitpoints fall above the total affected could be woken up by the spell. Obviously the question becomes moot if you start by waking everyone up.

@sumelic No, the duration is for those affected to remain sleeping. The determination of which creatures are affected is instantaneous. (I'll have to double-check the specifics in the rules first and report back this evening.)

@Miniman There's no need to be sarcastic. Until the edit, nothing in the question stated the "intended targets" weren't under the effects of the sleep spell.
