Are dapat and bisa interchangeable?

Are dapat and bisa interchangeable?

In this sentence, yes.
'dapat' can have other meanings as well.
So, it's not always interchangeable.

It would make more sense in English to say "she can sleep for a long time". The negative works though, "she can not sleep for very long."
