Salah

Sleeping after ‘Asr Salah

Question

Once I was tired and wanted to sleep after ‘Asr. Someone prevented me and said a Sahabi or one of the Salaf said to someone not to talk to a certain person as he sleeps after ‘Asr.   Is there a basis for this as I have never heard of it, I know there is a Hadith saying sleeping after ‘Asr diminishes one’s mental health but the Muhaddithun classify it as very weak.

Is there any Hadith saying one should not sleep after ‘Asr?
