Scenario: one PC vs a group of opponents
PC wins initiative and goes first. He casts sleep and all opponents go to sleep (assuming all conditions of sleep spell are met). Sleep says it lasts one minute and targets will only wake up if they take damage or are slapped/shaken awake.
Based on the step by step combat box on PHB 189, step 5 says "Begin the next round. When everyone involved in the combat has had a turn, the round ends. Repeat step 4 until the fighting stops."
PC hits first and all opponents are sleeping, they can't take a turn so when would that round end?
Q1a: If answer is, "They awake after a minute.", would the following be true?
Each round being 6 seconds (PHB 181 & 189) would mean PC has 10 rounds or 10 'Actions In Combat' he can use (PHB 192-3) before they wake up. As long as opponents don’t take damage or awake by slap/shake. Is that correct?
