In fembot fetishism, a sleeper is a fembot oblivious to her own nature, often believing herself to be genuinely human.
Unlike a fembot simply presenting as human, a sleeper internally believes herself to be human, and will often react negatively towards the idea of actually being a robot. This self-deception may be achieved through false memories, a fabricated environment and a denial of experienced reality. The purpose of a sleeper may be better integration in human society, whether for espionage purposes or human interaction, testing purposes, or to alleviate the transformation of a person from a human to a robotic body.
A sleeper becoming aware of her actual nature is often presented as a traumatic event, resulting in the fembot breaking down emotionally or terminally malfunctioning. Another approach to such a reveal is that of self-discovery, the sleeper coming to appreciate and even take advantage of her mechanical nature.
The term "sleeper" originates from the espionage idea of sleeper agents. While real-life sleeper agents simply maintain a deep and prolonged cover, their depiction in fiction often involves brainwashing, self-deception and false memories, traits the fembot-related term of "sleeper" draws upon.
