Well, cat's have two modes of sleep. They have a very light sleep, where they are resting but only temporarily, a small noise that seems different to them will wake them immeadiately. They also have a deep sleep, which they go into when resting for long periods of time. They will hear large noises in their dreams, like humans do, but won't notice them. Their minds make an excuse for them, say they hear a bang in real life, something will make that sound in their dream and they won't notice it. You would have to make a cointinues or very loud noise to wake them, or touch them.
