English term or phrase: fracture du matelas
faire une fracture du matelas, c'est faire une méchante sieste !

Crashing out
Explanation:
'fracturer le matelas', c'est une expression marseillaise qui veut dire 'dormir longtemps après avoir été très fatigué' (du fait d'avoir fait la fête, notamment)

Je pense que le plus proche équivalent en anglais serait 'to crash out', mais c'est vraiment du parler familier dans les deux cas...
