  Does {Qot} "lie, recline" describe the action of laying down, or is it the "(not)action" or the fact of lying on your back 

We have canon:
   QongDaqDaq Qotbe' tlhInganpu'
   Klingons do not lie in bed
Does it mean Klingons refuse to move their body into a bed, or do they refuse to stay in bed?

   QotDI' gheD tlhejbe' wamwI'
   The hunter does not lie down with the prey.
Does it mean the hunter refuses to accompany his prey as soon as it lays down, or as soon as it is already lying on the 

Other way around:
Does {QotchoH} make sense?

P.S. I think I don't know how to conjugate the verb "lie", so help me if you want! :-)
