Tool Used


First Appearance

Update 0.4.0

Beds are Blocks added in Update 0.4.0 that are used to Sleep during the night cycle. 


Beds are primarily obtained through Crafting. After Update 1.0, they also generate naturally in Igloos.


The color of the wool used can vary, as well as the type of Wooden Planks, as neither affects the color of the Bed.


When the Player sleeps in a Bed at night, the time automatically changes to day after a few seconds. A Bed is also used to mark a new spawn point, which overwrites the original spawn point until a new spawn point is set or the bed is destroyed.

If it is Raining when the Player goes to sleep, when the Player wakes up, the rain will be gone. This also works for Snow and Thunderstorms. 

Incorrect Usage

  • Attempting to sleep during the day will result in a message- "You can only sleep at night".
  • Attempting to sleep when monsters are close to the bed will result in a message- "You may not rest now, there are monsters nearby."
  • Attempting to sleep in the Nether or The End will cause the Bed to explode.


  • When playing Multiplayer, all the Players must be in Beds to skip the night.
  • Before Update 0.11.0, if the Player's Bed was destroyed, the Player would respawn at the spot where his/her Bed used to be, instead of at the world spawn point.
  • Sleeping to set a new spawn point doesn't affect a Compass, as the Compass will still point toward the world's original spawn point.
    • However, changing the world spawn with Commands will change the Compass's direction.
  • A Player is able to sleep as soon as the Clock face shows half night and half day, and until dawn.
    • The Player can sleep before it reaches Light Level 4, which is how dark it must be for hostile mobs to spawn. Doing so can prevent Hostile Mobs from spawning outdoors.
  • When Update 1.1 is released, Beds will be dyeable in the 16 Wool colors.
