First off, what are you using to measure your humidity?
Analogue hygrometers are known to fluctuate wildly.

Secondly, how long is it staying at 80%? Is it a constant 80%?
(Again, analogue hygrometers are not always very accurate).
But if it is simply spiking up to 80% every time you mist the cham, then that is normal. It is not uncommon for the hygrometer to go up even higher than that during misting sessions (especially if it gets wet).

But usually that spike of humidity goes down pretty quickly as the cage dries out. What you actually want to keep an eye on is the average humidity throughout the day. Live plants in the cage help to stabilise the humidity so that it doesn't fall off so quickly from those spikes during misting sessions.

Sleeping?

You said he was sleeping in the middle of the cage. I hope he is not sleeping during the day, this is a sign of serious problems.
