IMHO, Cooper said it could wait until morning because he had already forgotten.
Why is it so hard to believe that he couldn't recall that part of the dream?
For those that have seen SPELLBOUND, Gregory Peck's character had a masked man
in his dream who's identity was very important.  Cooper should have known the
identity of the killer from the evidence he saw but couldn't figure it out
so his subconscious sends him this dream giving him further clues but still
holding back on the killer's identity.
Just because Laura (or her cousin) whispered the name to him doesn't mean
he ever knew it.
