How can my cat tell that I am asleep?

I can be lying in bed and reading and nothing happens. I can be lying in bed playing Tetris on my phone and the cat leaves me in peace. HOWEVER. The moment I go and take a nap (with the light still on, mind you - there are reasons, but they're not important), nothing has changed in my environment, I am not making any more or less noise, but suddenly the cat springs into action.
I can not lie down with my eyes shut for more than three minutes without being meowed at insistently. Again, if I am simply lying in the bed without trying to sleep, the cat's agenda does not include meowing in my face.
Why is this? Why God why? Can she smell my brainwaves or what?
