Yes that is very possible and I am sure that is what happened, at least I know my Betta does that , he will have a couple of rest periods during the day and then he likes to go to sleep at night around 11pm and doesnt really like to be active till around 8am or 9am in the morning. I am sure you only startled him by turning on the light.
I agree with Matt though if your concerned about him do fill out the form.
