"The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time" originally came out for Nintendo 64 and has since been adapted for both the GameCube and Wii. In the game, there are a few sleeping characters you'll need to wake. One of the sleepers will give you an item that will let you wake the sleeping man in the forest. They are both part of a larger quest to get the best possible sword.
Go to Kakariko Village in the northeast corner of the main map while playing as adult Link. Go to the southeast corner of town and talk to a woman standing near a chicken coop. She will give you a Pocket Egg.
Wait a full day for the Pocket Egg to hatch into a Pocket Cucco. You could also use your Ocarina to advance time by playing "Sun's Song" twice. Go to the middle of Kakariko Village and enter the house to the northeast. You'll see Talon sleeping.
Use your Pocket Cucco to wake him. Talk to Talon, then go back to the woman near the chicken coop. Talk to her again and use your Pocket Cucco after the conversation. She'll give you Cojiro as a reward for waking Talon.
Go to the center right area of the main map and enter Kokiri Forest. Go all the way to the north and climb to the entrance to the Lost Woods. Enter the Lost Woods and go to the left. You'll see a man sleeping next to a stump.
Use Cojrio to wake the sleeping man. He will give you an Odd Mushroom you must deliver to the potion's shop in Kakariko Village in three minutes.
