  2. Being "in bed" and "sleeping" are not necessarily the same. One may sleep in a hammock, on a sofa, outdoors in the grass, in a chair, any number of places. And people do things in bed that are not sleeping, from reading to watching TV to sex, etc.

    Bed covers refer to sheets and blankets, bedspreads, coverlets, etc. The things that cover the mattress.
