    the first one doesn't need any puncuation.

    After the book slid from my lap and landed on my foot; I realized that I had fallen asleep.

    You're right about the first sentence.

    I'm not sure whether you have a comma or semicolon after foot. You need a comma there.

    why do i need to add a comma there
