Is it illegal to sleep in your car in a parking lot?

It could very well be considered trespassing by the properties owner if you are sleeping in his parking lot. That makes it not so much you are sleeping in your car, it is that you are on private property, and that makes it illegal if he does not want you there.

If you are drunk and sleeping in your car, then you may get arrested for DUI regardless of where you are parked.

It is a safety hazard and illegal to park on the hard shoulder of a road.

Your city or town have have an ordinance against it, if that is the case, then yes it is. Could be called a vagrant if you have no permanent residence

It is not illegal for the most part under certain conditions but not the safest thing you could do. I would rather have a tired driver grab a small nap than fall asleep while driving.

If you received a ticket, then it is illegal where you were sleeping
