Sunnah clothes to wear when one sleeps

Q: For men and women, what is the appropriate and sunnah clothes to wear when one sleeps? Should the satr be covered when sleeping or can a man sleep with a t-shirt and shorts for example?

A: It is better for one to cover the satr when sleeping so that one is not deprived of the company of the malaaikah.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
