Type Boolean Object Body Library physics.* Revision Release 2021.3642 Keywords body, isAwake See also object.isBodyActive object.isSleepingAllowed
A boolean for the body's current "awake" state. By default, all bodies automatically "sleep" when nothing interacts with them for a couple of seconds. At this point, they stop being simulated until something like a collision wakes them up. The
isAwake property can either fetch a body's current state or forcibly wake it up.
