Really doesn't make a difference to me. I kinda like it when people doze off. Usually gives me a feeling that I'm driving ok,and they'r not worried/concerned with my driving abilities.
Especially noticed it when I went on my 1st long distance drive after getting married.My F-I-L used to be the only driver,with the male:female ratio in the family at 1:3..
He was in the Army,and was used to driving long distances by himself. He was never used to sitting in the back of his own car,so it was a pleasent surprise when he slept off while I took the wheel of his M800. I was kinda pleased.. .Same thing happened during my last trip,when I drove his brand new Fiesta.
My mom,dad & bro used to sleep off all the time during our long distance trips,so that was all that I was used to. Used an opportunity like that when we went to Goa,and i hit 147km/h on the Karwar strip. They had no clue about it.
Music & some chewing gum helps me stay awake..

Actually there are two perspectives to it. Normally it does not. I hardly bother myself with people in the car when I am driving on long highways. There is just too much to enjoy and concentrate as well to bother with the passengers.
However, the other perspective is at nights. If you have driven at dead of the night, particularly around 4 am on dark highways, you will know the problem. If someone sitting in the front passenger seat dozes off it gets disconcerting at this hour. This is the time when suddenly sleep starts chasing you. Particularly if you have not slept properly in the last 5 hours or so. A sleeping passenger next to the driver can have a deleterious effect. Normally its better to have an alert navigator next to you at these hours.
P.S.: The poll should have had another option of 'Sometimes it does.'

Sleeping passengers do not annoy me while driving. However, an active engaging passenger in the front seat is always welcome in tiresome long drives.

I love to drive with sleeping passengers, overnight drives are so peacefull when all the passengers are asleep, just need the songs thats all.

My holiday starts when I start the car, and I love to "enjoy the car" on long drives. To be honest, I dont like it when people talk too much.
Thus, its great when they are sleeping and leave me & my car alone.

I love to drive, and hence it doesnt really bother me if the passengers are asleep or not. I want music of my choice to be playing, and that should suffice for me.
During night drives, however, i dont mind having a navigator whose awake.
