The Sims 4 allows for a lot of variabilities when it comes to the Sims’ movement. Scooting over in bed is one of the more obscure possibilities the game offers. However, it adds even more realism to it.

How to Scoot Over in Bed
Scooting over in bed is one of the activities that Sims performs autonomously from time to time. But only if they’re fast asleep. If they’re staying still, though, and you would like them to scoot over to the other side of the bed, there’s a method for it.
First, click the other side of the bed. Choose the sleep interaction. Finally, you should cancel the current sleeping action, if the game hasn’t done so automatically. Following these steps should make the Sim scoot over in their bed.
It’s All About Timing
Some players have reported they can’t make their Sims scoot over. If that’s your case as well, you can try to time the action.
Start by clicking the bed and choosing Sleep. Once the Sim lies down, but before they fall asleep, quickly click on the other side of the bed and choose Sleep again. If done fast enough, the Sim should scoot over and then fall asleep.
It works with napping similarly. Once again, choose Nap and click the opposite side of the bed once the Sim lies down. Choose Nap once more and watch the Sim scoot over.
If you want to increase the chance that your Sim will scoot over in bed, make them as tired as possible. The more tired the Sim is, the higher the possibility they will scoot over, as some players have stated.
Sometimes scooting over doesn’t work if one side of the bed is against the wall. To ensure there’s nothing blocking the Sim’s movement, place the bed in an open space and try again.
