First I've ever heard of this being a symptom of PD.  My experience is to awaken after fours hours of 'resting'  in the exact, precise, unmoved position I went to sleep in.  I'd think it is a medication side effect as PD generally inhibits motion rather than prompts it.  Kindly repost if/when you and the doctor have this one figured out.

Since Sinemet, I sleep like a "dead person" also.  I often awake with numb limbs because of it and stiff as a board as well.  But, before meds, I thrashed around in my sleep, kicked, and often cried out, too.  Then, when I tried Ambien, the sleepwalking began.  Someone on this site is bound to have better info, but I've heard that PD and PD meds can cause this kind of sleep disturbance--but, (blah blah blah) we are all different, so I'd say, check with your doc.
