Isn't "My daughter sleeps now." equivalent to "My daughter is sleeping now." at least on a semantic level of the sentence?

As far as I know, in English present continuous is used to indicate events happening at the moment.

"Моя донька спить зараз." Both English variants "sleeps" and "is sleeping" are accepted now.

I wasn't aware using present simple with "now" is OK like that. Added it, now it's accepted. Thanks!
