Hi, my RES is pretty healthy (he eat, swim and bask) and i set the temperature at 80 degrees. However, when my light are on, he sometimes go to sleep (like taking a nap, and I heard sleeping while the light is on is a bad sign of health~ so i just wonder, is it just because he is tired so he just take a nap? or is he really unhealthy? plz help i am so worry

This is normal. my turtles take naps during daytime while they\'re basking. Be sure to check out their eyes (are they completely open an normal) and also their breathing (do they breath by the mouth?).
