I’ve noticed that fleas are more active at night. That is when I am getting bite a lot. Do they sleep?

Fleas don’t really ever sleep. They are just less active at certain points of the day. Right around sunset is when they’re most active. And around daybreak is when they’re least active. Generally, cat fleas will be more active at night than during the day.
