Could someone explain me what is it supposed to mean? :) Is it an idiom of some kind?

In English, you say a body part (usually feet) are asleep when they have a numbness associated with lack of blood flow.

For example, if you sit cross-legged for a long time, and you try to stand up but you can't feel your foot completely, you might say that your foot is asleep.

Hope this helps.
