Crazy breeds are only known as crazy because they aren't getting enough exercise. Most sheep dogs work and nap all day in cycles. A dog who is unhappy will start to refuse to do things. A "working" sheepdog will seem to sleep 90% of the day.

Both of them do have a very good off-switch. If we're not training, they might be wrestling with each other for a bit, but other than that they're sleeping. Maybe I'm worrying about it too much.
I'd say you're in the category of worrying too much. My guess is that they don't sleep very deeply mostly the time they "asleep". Being shepherds they are built for 30minutes-60 minutes of vigorous activity followed by nice "one eye open" sleepy times.
