Your body uses energy no matter what you are doing, even when sleeping.

Your Basal Metabolic Rate is the number of calories you would burn if you stayed in bed all day. Your body uses approximately, 1,457 Calories per day (6 Kilojoules / day).

The Basal Metabolic Rate is measured under very restrictive circumstances while awake.

An accurate BMR measurement requires that a person’s sympathetic nervous system is inactive, which means the person must be completely rested.
