    sleep down ?

    Is there such phrasal verb available ?

    eg I am sleeping down in the movie. What does it mean ? or there is no such sentence ?

    I have never heard of sleeping down before. Certainly, a person can sleep through a movie. You can also sleep over at somebody's house.

    :)

    It's new to me. We have 'doss down' meaning to sleep somewhere that is not your home, especially if it's on a sofa or the floor.
