I see no evidence of a phrase the means to "sleep very late". The closest thing we can see in this section to a phrase with that specific meaning is as follows:

But a single delay would suffice to fatally break the chain of communication; should Phileas Fogg once miss, even by an hour; a steamer, he would have to wait for the next, and that would irrevocably render his attempt vain.
