    Question Difference between She's slept / She's asleep / She's sleeping

    My question is more related to the meaning and use or usage of this words, than to the exact function they have by themselves in the sentence, as verbs, adjectives, nouns, etc.

    In the first, her sleep was recent. In the others it is still going on.
