I am not a native speaker. An English friend of mine uses “bail to bed”. Is it OK?

I believe it’s referring to the zzzz of snoring sounding like a saw ripping and tearing into wood.

What is “hay” supposed to mean?

Hay is very long grass cultivated and bound into bales primarily for farm animals to eat. However, it is also used in stables and as bedding material for all sorts of animals and im sure at one time was used in mattresses for people. Im not 100% positive but Id bet the house on it that this is where the term hay in reference to sleeping or going to sleep originated from.

I prefer shutdown or sleep mode. It sounds more electronic.
