Default Dwarf hamster sleeping in playpen and odd behavior?

So my little hammy has started to play up.
She's in an Alaska cage, 4 inches of bedding, chew toy and wheel.
Age about 1 year and 3 months.
Bitting and climbing her bars and seeming more territorial.
She's in the living room and if I make a noise or talk she's right on them bars.
Even nibbling blankets and clothing when playing on my hand.
If she seems hyper.
I place her in her playpen daily, size 100 x 40 x 40cm.
She plays on the wheel and climbers her toys but less than 10 minutes later she's asleep.
I scoop her up if I spot her looking sleepy and burrowing, then place her in her cage by her bed.
If she's asleep I leave her and scoop when she's awake.

When I take her out of her playpen she starts bitting the bars and playing up.
Any advice?

Have you changed anything in the cage or had a big clean that might have upset her & made her more territorial in the cage or any others changes that could have caused a change in behaviour?
Not sure about her falling asleep in the playpen tbh, I've had baby hams do that but not at her age, is it warm enough where the playpen is?
