When they say that, they are referring to your head orientation being sideways, as it would be if you were laying on a couch. That's not the case with your bed, or at least I hope not (lol).
Draw an imaginary horizontal straight line that intersects your eyes at the pupil. If that line is parallel to the floor (and hence parallel to the top and bottom of the TV) then things are ok, which is the case with the TV at your feet and you lying on your back. If you want to lay sideways (as if on a couch) and watch 3D tv with your eyes in an up/down orientation, put the TV on its side.
It got confusing to the public for a while there because in the beginning of this technology LG made this absurd claim that passive glasses allow you to see 3D when lying down (with your head sideways), and it was premature and debunked, because the 3D comes from Left/Right images being fed to the left and right eyes from a camera with Left and Right apertures, and this is a horizontal orientation that just cannot suddenly work if the camera remains flat but your head and glasses go sideways. They've since pulled that crap from the propaganda.
