Generally speaking you lay diagonally...but, really, you lay in whatever position makes you feel most comfortable. I sleep in no less than 40 different positions, depending upon how I'm feeling that particular night.

My understanding is you sleep across a hammock (or obliquely) rather than plumb with the ropes that affix the hammock to tree. Photos on this site don't look like that.
