"When are they sleeping?" is also acceptable?

If you write it in the "type what you hear" exercise, it is indeed incorrect. Please remember that when "i" follows any of "d", "t", "n", it softens them to "ď", "ť", "ň".

So oni is /oňi/ and ony is /oni/. They sound different.

You may want to also review the Tips and notes of the introductory lessons.
