As far as I know, there isn't a nerve in your neck that will help you sleep. That is more of a chemical reaction in your brain. There is, however, a nerve behind your mandible (jaw) that, if struck properly, will sometimes cause unconsciousness. That nerve is called the Auricular branch of the Vagus nerve.
