when asleep及to用法

以下問題請問喔,謝謝。

1. See man found that elderly people who felt emotionally isolated maintained higher levels of stress hormones even when asleep.

為什麼when後面沒有主詞呢?而是直接加asleep?是否是省略了they are?什麼情況下可以做這樣的省略呢?

2. It would be about a ten-minute walk away from here.

請問walk是否為動詞?為什麼不在前面加to呢?

    when asleep = when they are asleep

    當連接詞前後主詞為同一主體時, 副詞子句的「主詞 + beV」可省略.

    2. It would be about a ten-minute walk away from here.

    請問walk是否為動詞?為什麼不在前面加to呢?

    本句中的walk是名詞.

    a ten-minute walk : 一段花十分鐘的步行路程 (ten-minute是複合形容詞)

    這種用法很普遍,只是主動詞省略,例如 if (it is)possible, if(it is)necessary, if so=if this is true,所以本句是when elderly people were asleep省略

    2. It would be about a ten-minute walk away from here.

    請問walk是否為動詞?為什麼不在前面加to呢?walk是名詞,做介詞about受詞
