Hey @wambo89.2023, this is a great question and after looking into it online, it seems like a lot of users would love to be able to use their headset while laying down. There is definitely a stationary mode on Quest headsets, but most of the games and apps are designed in a sitting or standing position. It doesn't appear there is a native way to use your headset while in a laying down position. 

It seems some users are able to use the app Big Screen while laying down so you can watch videos in VR if that interests you! Here's a Reddit post about it. 

Since there doesn't seem to be much traction on a native "laying down mode" for Quest, we recommend posting it over on our Ideas thread so hopefully we can see that feature added in the future!
