Can you sin in dreams?

I know that dreams themselves are not necessarily sinful, but what if there is full consent of the will in the dream? I had a dream I was going to commit adultery with another woman, I thought about how it is wrong and decided to do it anyway. Could that be considered sinful since in my dream, I had full consent of the will?
