How do you feed, as a vampire. When I press space, it doesn't do anything but pickpocket. Yes, they are asleep.

To drop items from your inventory, open up your inventory view, click on the item you wish you drop, hold the mouse button and drag the item off your inventory and out into open space. It'll drop on the ground at your feet.

Damn!!!! About time I found the CONTROL section for the PC version. You know there are shitloads of strategy guides and such, but really nobody but you have shown where the control section is...Thanks very much.

The easiest way that I have found is to be invisible when you do it. That way you encounter no resistance on your way through and can do it much faster. You can buy a chameleon spell from one of the dark brotherhood characters and enchant 2 rings a necklace and a couple of articles of clothing and be completely un detectable.
