Student Sleeper

I have a student who falls asleep in class almost every day. Originally, we were concerned. Is she not getting enough rest? is she not feeling well? Is something going on at home? We have been in contact with her parents and none of the above apply. Recently she got in trouble again for falling asleep in class and was sent to the office. In the office, she admitted to purposefully falling asleep in class because she does not want to be there. She claims she is bored but I'm not sure how. I have a voice that carries, I'm energetic, and I like to plan fun lessons. When she falls asleep in class I tell her she needs to wake up and do her work or if I catch her sleeping again then she will have to go up to the office. She falls asleep again, I ask her to go to the office, and she gets argumentative. Says she is not leaving the classroom and argues that she wasn't sleeping (her head was down and her eyes were closed). I do not know what to do? I have tried to take an interest in what she likes to do but she does not engage. I have tried to give her the benefit of the doubt with many chances. I just don't know how to keep her awake.
