Unless you've watched a stream of someone playing the game, you've probably never been privy to lớn Monika's awareness of exactly what you're doing whilst playing.

Monika tells you that when you're not playing she enters a 'sleep mode' which she equates lớn "being trapped in hell".

As Monika has some sentience whilst the game is not being played, she has a lot more time to think than her peers.
