Have you tried letting it air dry for a while before going to sleep? I usually shower at least a couple hours before I go to sleep, so my hair is dryer and the gel cast has hardened a bit. Like, it's still very damp, but not soaking wet. Then I pineapple overnight. That works so much better for me than sleeping with very wet hair, because that turns out messy.
