That could be right..

How does a giraffe sleep? T Rex might also have been able to squat and rest on his tail. Just guessing.

Yes, and they've found evidence of them having huge eye bags.

I think if you look at birds you will find that some dinosaurs slept like this, especially  bipedal, and very likely the four legged type like our current horses, bovine. And some even resting on their sides like rhinos.

Slow awake, fast asleep......

You can't compare whales with dinosaurs because whales evolved in water, while dinos evolved on land.

Their skeletal structure was way different.

And most whales were as heavy or heavier than most dinosaurs, btw.

Maybe only the sauropods slept standing up.

I would as well because it'll be as big as a Redwood.
It'll be so huge it would be worthy of a nickname today.
Tbh I can't see any dinosaurs perching in a tree.
People tend to put too much emphasis on the fact that birds are living dinosaurs.
If dinosaurs are going to sleep it will be on their feet or with their legs tucked in.
It really depends on their size and I'm sure whichever species it is will have found a system.
But one thing I know for sure are T-Rex's prey sleeping with one eye open.

I never really thought about after I fell asleep on me feet with my back on a wall. Although now all I can picture is other dinos playing a game of T-rex tipping as a rite in to adulthood.
