    Ich werde auch schlafen. (possible, but unusual)
    Ich werde (!) auch schlafen gehen.
    Ich gehe (jetzt) auch schlafen.

    There's a tendency in German to replace future with present if it is obvious from the context or construction (gehen + verb) that the action will take place in the future. Also note that "gehen + infinitive" is a special construction (go to some place and then start doing something) and not the same as "going to do" in English. Also, "schlafen gehen" is a very common combination.

    Another possiblity: "Ich gehe auch ins Bett".
