When you warp in additional ships in a wormhole site, do it spawn additional sleepers?

Do it matter if the ship is cloaked?

If a ship warp in and launch combat drones against the ship thats fighting the sleepers, will the sleepers attack the drones?

Only if you start adding capital ships

I don't think so

Sleepers will not fight like other NPCs. They will retarget 'intelligently' and dynamically. So your drone might suddenly be primary and instapop. In other words, drones vs sleepers not recommended.

It does not matter a lot. Sleepers might shoot your drones if they think they're a threat.

Also, to be a bit more precise :
Using a Carrier in a Class 5 or 6 wormhole to do magnetic, combat or radar sites WILL spawn 6 ADDITIONAL Sleeper Battleships.
Assigning Fighters to someone who then goes to a magnetic, combat or radar site will also cause 6 additional battleships to spawn.
Orcas do not spawn the additional 6 battleships at any site or encounter.

Warping more ships to a sleeper site will not spawn additional sleepers. Unless is a cap ship as stated above.

If you warp into a site and attack the player fighting Sleepers, then yes, the Sleepers may start targeting you or your drones instead. I'm not sure how often or quickly they do so, but it's a risk. Better wait until the player kills the last Sleeper, then de-cloak and gank him.
