I think he was wide awake, He was a White Bear Warrior, one of the Rathori that remain awake during the winter to protect the sleeping rathori. But during the Syndic's Ban, all the normal rathori slept through it which means that all the White Bear Warriors were wide awake for a hundred years, slowly going insane under a magic curse. Harrek is tough because he has fought and killed numerous enemies as well as other white bear warriors. For him, the Ban ended when he killed of the last if his colleagues. No wonder he killed and skinned his own patron.
