aufstehen und aufwachten, ist das gleich?

"Aufstehen" is "to get up"; "Aufwachen" is "to wake up".

The verb "aufstehen" can also mean (to) stand up or get up. It describes the changes to larger physical body, i.e. getting out of bed, off a chair. "aufwachen" can mean (to) wake up, which refers rather to the sensory body, the consciousness.
