The deepest stage of sleep is REM or Rapid Eye Movement.

3,4. Both stages are now combined and are just called stage 3, SWS ( slow wave sleep) or deep sleep. Stage 3 is the deepest stage.

The stages of sleep are: NREM 1, NREM 2, NREM 3, and REM sleep. The deepest stage of sleep is NREM 3, it is also called slow wave sleep since it has delta waves on an EEG. Dreams occur in REM sleep and is one of the shallowest stages of sleep.

REM stands for Rapid Eye Movement and signifies the deepest stage of sleep.

No, it is actually closest to waking.

Contrary to popular belief, sleepwalking occurs in the deepest stages of sleep, called delta-wave sleep or stage 4 sleep. REM sleep, by contrast, is rapid eye movement sleep, during which the body is in a near-paralysis state.
