Is it possible to snore while you are awake?

My boyfriend always says he doesn't sleep through the night, while I on the other am pretty sure he does because he is usually snoring. My father has expressed similar ideas. He'll claim not to have fallen asleep and my family would just laugh because he is quite the loud snorer. It never bothered me with my dad since we all just laughed it off but my bf keeps insisting that it is possible for him to be snoring and not be asleep. I just want the question answered once and for all. Anyone? Thanks!

Yes it is possible to snore without sleeping, especially, for back layers.
