I think it's because your immune system is working in "overtime" while you sleep. This causes pimples to "grow" with pus...

Thats probably the right answer. A lot of things happen in the body when you sleep and people often recommend plenty of sleep to help keep skin clear. I guess when you already have a pimple though, sleep speeds up the healing process and a part of that healing process is sometimes, the formation of a whitehead.

Dirt on yer pillow case wouldn't cause a new pimple to form overnight. (They usually take a lil longer than several hours) Well, i guess if you have dirty pillow cases, it can contribute to it down the road... but a pimple doesnt form and appear the next morning from one night.
