    Do they or don't they? I'm just curious that's all, like do they transform into alt mode and power down at night or something?

    They go into stasis mode to regenerate and repair.

    I like to think so. I consider it "recharge" like many others.

    I imagine Ironhide snoring loud.

    In other continuities, yes. They go offline to recharge, and even dream.

    In the movieverse, unknown, but they can be rendered unconscious, so maybe they sleep as well.

    The thought never occured to me but I'm sure some sort of cool down mode would make sense. Maybe they were asleep in ROTF when they were just sitting in the NEST base in vehicle mode, not doing anything.

    Undeniably the best G1 scene ever.

    I like to think the Autobots were sleeping in the hangar at NEST headquarters when the camera panned in on them in vehicle mode, in ROTF.

    So if a human is in a movie and never sleeps in a scene that means they never do?

    In Animated, the Transformers mention taking "stasis naps", especially Ratchet. I can actually imagine Transformers sleeping, as it makes a lot of sense, not like other forms of humanization in the franchise. I suppose they Transform into alt-mode and just park for a while.

    Cybertronians probably think parking garages are weird because all the cars are so close together.

    In Transformers Animated Ratchet was taking a nap and kept getting ticketed. Even during the Christmas episode they were sleeping and woke up as humans.

    Why do you always use exclamation marks!! It's really annoying!!! OMG!!!
    Just because they don't show something doesn't mean it isn't there!!!

    This could explain why they're mostly in vehicle mode when they're at base instead of robot mode.

    I think the more important question is "do they brush their teeth before sleeping" :D

    It's possible that they sleep since there is nothing in the movies to suggest that they don't.

    But if you really wanted to make the topic more fun you should have asked do they poop?
