I was just about to fall asleep then/when I heard the sound of thunder.

Is "just" redundant, and should "then" or "when" be used?

Thanks!

@tanguatlay,
Using "just" is optkonal.
Use "when".

"Just" isn't redundant. It's the difference between saying "I was close to falling asleep," and "I was very close to falling asleep."
