Based on the classic fairy tale of Rip Van Winkle, where a character falls asleep and wakes more than a few days later...usually a decade or more.

From TV Tropes:
The main character of the series (often after getting into arguments and/or just being an idiot) settles down for a nice midday nap. When he wakes up, it's several decades later. He sees the effects of his absence - anything he did wrong can now never be fixed; those who loved him are miserable after his long absence; and everything has changed. Sometimes, in the end, someone will shake him, calling his name out repeatedly, and it will turn out to have been All Just a Dream or an elaborate hoax. Other times, the character will be stuck in the "future."
