There are many levels of sleep in terms of deepness.
One of the highest levels (the deepest) is called REM or Rapid Eye Movement. If he's in this level, and you open his eyelid, you'll notice how fast his eyeball "rolls around." This is the level of sleep where you remember almost everything you dreamed. And since nightmares are often remembered, it falls into this category. Usually, this is the longest sleep and tends to happen on younger people, especially babies.
And in general, the shallowest dreams are the ones you don't remember. You just know you dreamed, but you don't remember a thing. You'll be easily awaken from a simple audible sound, or from a simple touch on your skin if your dream is at this level. Usually, this is the shortest sleep and most old people dream this level.
