    You go to sleep/bed

    I read the sentences 'You go to sleep. I'm going to stay up' in the book SAY IT BETTER IN ENGLISH. The first sentence must be equal to 'You go to bed', mustn't it?

    Not necessarily. The two people concerned could be in a hotel room. The person addressed could already be in bed, the speaker sitting in an armchair reading.
