It's not wrong but on the other hand, if sleeping and doing nothing is your idea of a good time, maybe it would be interesting to check if you are suffering from depression.
lol.. fucking bullshit.

Maybe he doesn't give a shit, and simply wants to lie in? yeah, laziness and comfort are mental health disorders.

Now, really, suspecting a depression behind the luxury to stay in bed 24 hours really goes a bit too far.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with sleeping and doing nothing. There are a gazillion of more likely and completely non-depressive reasons for a serious craving for sleep and quiet, such as (incomplete list) :

a) having a baby or teenager or several thereof
b) your neighbours having babies or teenagers
c) loud neighbours
d) working fulltime or even overtime
e) getting on in years / being no teenager anymore
f) having a very active SO ("hey, you, rise and shine, it's already 4 am!! Let's go jogging" Arrgh!)
g) liking peace and quiet and taking things a bit slow
h) simply enjoying staying in bed for a change, particularly if...
i) ...the weather is bad
j) DST lag
k) spring fatigue
l) a deep love for comfort and the nice things in life
m) a new mattress / duvet / freshly washed bedlinnen (smells so good, particularly if dried outdoors!)
n) not having any urgent reason to get up (apart from a full bladder, perhaps)
o) having a really interesting book
p) getting advance sleep for a night of stargazing (yesterday were the Lyrids, a very nice annual meteorite rain with about 20 very bright and long-tailed ones per hour)
q) getting advance sleep for a TV night
r) for once escaping the everyday hectic
s) having the house/flat all to yourself for a day
t) and other reasons galore, all of them very normal and sane.

Come on, have you really never simply stayed in bed all day? Give it a try, guys - it's fun!!
Well, s/he gets it.

Data, those sound like signs of clinical depression. Seek help, my friend.

Now that I am older and a widower, I'd give anything to do more than sit home on my birthday. The most I get are long distance calls from kids and grandkids. Enjoy those "annoying" interruptions while you can.

Next December 14, I am making plans to volunteer at the homeless shelter and meal kitchen. It will be a good way to give back to others in need and make my birthday special again. Hopefully, my health will be improved enough to do it.
More bollocks/nonsense.

Maybe he has no children to look after, or SO.

Maybe he has the day off work. Maybe he has no real chores to do or errands to run.
Infraction for spamming. Four rapid fire posts in a row with barely any useful content. Use the multi-quote function in the future. Comments to PM.

My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
