Why did I fall asleep without feeling like I was sleeping?

I got home from work and I was laying on my bed on my phone for a few minutes but I decided to take a small nap and I closed my eyes and it just felt like my eyes were closed but I "woke up" 30 minutes later without even knowing that and I thought I could not sleep but the time had passed but I felt awake the whole time? How is this possible?

    You probably got some sleep. You just did not notice it because you were unconscious (asleep) There was a sleep study where the subjects thought they got no sleep but based on REM movements, they got some sleep.
