Sleepwalking is the fifth studio album by Gerry Rafferty, released in 1982. It is the follow-up to the 1980 album Snakes and Ladders. It would be Rafferty's last album for Liberty/United Artists, and his last for six years.

Sleepwalking was co-produced by Rafferty and Christopher Neil who went on to become the producer for Mike + The Mechanics. Unlike the previous Rafferty albums such as City to City and Night Owl there is considerable use of synthesisers and drum programming, some of the latter done by Christopher Neil, along with contributions from British session musicians including Hugh Burns, Mo Foster, Liam Genockey, Kenny Craddock, Maurice Pert and Mel Collins.

The album was reissued as a 2-CD set with Snakes and Ladders by EMI in August 2012.

The track "The Right Moment" from this album was later recorded by Olivia Newton-John in 1985 for her Soul Kiss album.
