the amount of time it takes one to fall asleep.

The length of time it takes to go from full wakefulness to the moment of sleep.
In sleep science, sleep latency is the length of time that it takes to go from full wakefulness to falling asleep. During daytime, a sleep latency of 15-25 minutes is considered normal. A shorter sleep latency is likely a sign that the person suffers from sleep deprivation.
