What noises are my downstairs neighbor hearing?

I live in the top floor of a newly-constructed (less than a year old) wood-framed apartment complex. I try to be a good neighbor and keep any noises to a minimum. However, yesterday, my neighbor that lived right below my unit came to talk to me about thumping noises that he hears coming directly above him. He says it sounds like somebody was dropping heavy objects or moving furniture. The thing is, he claims he mostly hears this after 11PM. However, I'm usually in bed and sound asleep by 11. So what could it be that he's hearing?

1) Could it be my snoring? But my neighbor claims the noise doesn't sound like that. And he claims to hear it above both his bedroom and his living room.
2) Could my tossing and turning on my bed be causing the noise? I have an IKEA MALM bed and I don't think it creaks or makes any noise at all when I'm tossing or turning.
3) Maybe I'm sleep-moving my furniture?
Does anyone have any other ideas?
