Default Barking/snapping when I move Maggie in her sleep

When I need to move Maggie on the bed and she's sleeping, she will growl and then bark and snap at me. I make sure that I wake her before moving her and I correct her every time she does it. I say "No" in a very deep, firm, growling tone.

Since this forum is full of great advice and my way is not working, I thought I'd post it here and see if anyone has any suggestions. I have to move her at night if i wake up and she is taking up all the space. I have no intentions of kicking her out of bed completely. I don't think I would be able to sleep if I did... Also, I don't think I'm hurting her. I don't even try to pick her up all the way. I just try to lift her up enough to make her get up. Oh and I don't think she has any intention of biting me. I think she is just letting me know I'm making her mad....

Any ideas/suggestions?

Jaxon used to do this. I just made sure to make a lot of noise and also to teach him "off" or "move" it just took some time. And he didn't do it every time.

I will try making a lot of noise next time. I have tried "off" which she is normally really good about, but she won't mind it in that situation.

I guess she's a total diva in her sleep - just completely stubborn. Lol! It's just so weird because any other time she understands I am the alpha and respects it. Diva's gotta have her beauty sleep.

Sally kicks me when I try to move her when she is sleeping! Even if I am trying to move her from the couch to the bed! I also get stinkeyed for doing the same thing.
I have been doing it every night since we got her, but she still does it!
