Hiya Guru grace
As I understand it expecting anything at all ,waiting for a result, looking for a goal or any similar mental actions during meditation defiantely interferes with meditation .
Just do it without caring about it .
If you fall asleep
.Do it when you are walking ,When you are standing up .Do anywhere anytime .Stop in the middle of some daily activity and do it.
Read Ramana's teaching a lot .
Read one line that you feel inspiring over and over .
Keep at it !!!
Don't worry !!
Let things take the time that they naturally take .That way you wont notice the time passing so much .
Keep Ramana in your thoughts as much as you can .

Mr Hiyagrace, getting sleep during meditation is the experience of
most of us.  Bhagavan says that we can continue meditation once
we come out of sleep.  Bhagavan even says that it is the mind which
needs sleep and not the body!  One line of Bhagavan that is wanted
by you.  Refer Who am I? " If you control the mind, you can be

Sri Sadhu Om says that this is normal and to resume afterward. Sleep is compared to our real nature and thus if you "meditate" you are sinking into your real nature.

In my understanding, meditation = Self-Enquiry = keeping attention on the self.  I AM THAT I AM,  BEING I AM is SELF.  Or Be Still and Know that I AM GOD.

Meditating on "something" means duality, the one meditating and the object meditated upon.

For more info, better than I can put in words, read Sri Sadhu Om's third book.
Oh Arunachala, blazing fire of Jnana, in my heart I pray and think of Thee from afar, root out the ego, merging me in the Self.

Mr. "gurugrace", while meditating, either without or within, there
are lots of problems.  The foremost is gushing of thoughts.  Sleep
comes next.  Fear also comes for most of us.  While getting thoughts,
sleep or fear, do not bother.  Ask "For whom are these thoughts,
sleep or fear?".  It will go off.  But if you still get sleep, coninue
meditation, while you become awake.  Read "Who am I?" or
simply say "Arunachala Siva".  While I get sleep, I say: "Bhagavan
Ramana, let me sleep in You."  He is taking care.
