Mensagem:  Tom, thanks!
The site is very interesting- I´ll keep it according my favorites although I could not find the answer there!

I guess your explanation was much better to undestand the sentences that I mentioned:

"Could you lay in bed till I fall asleep";
"Lay back and relax"

Lay (down) turns into an intransitive verb when meaning lie(down)!!
The sentences may not be a "pure"(correct)English and baffles people but you may hear it, I guess!!?
