More unofficial answers...

I believe so.

The card takes precedence. It /has/ to be this way. Otherwise, a combination
like Motion Detectors (which attaches to the objective and prevents any
future sleazing against that objective) and Mine Fields would be impossible
to beat.

>3) Is "Sleep" cool to play during runner to runner combat? The card states

I would seriously doubt this is cool. Runners are not challenges - even if
they are "personnel-like".

Fatigue only effects the attack value (the number in front of the slash).
If doubling the penalty from wounds brings the attack below 0, it's just
counted as zero. Only /damage/ lowers body. Fatigue is just an effect, based
on damage, that lowers the runner's ability to inflict damage.
