    Not a native speaker, but it should mean have to sleep/want to sleep.

    from google translate i see 要 or Yào means "wish" or "desear" so I am guessing it's "i want to sleep" or "wish to sleep"

    means" i'll sleep." "i want to sleep." you can say "我想睡觉了。“

    I think it has different meanings with different subjects. ”你要睡觉“means "you should sleep". 他/我要睡觉 both want and will are OK. It depends on the context.

    要 睡觉 = will sleep

    It should be I'm going to sleep.
