"Getting out of bed” means to leave your bed but leaves open the possibility that you will return.
“Getting up” means to leave your bed to begin your day
The difference between “getting out of bed” and “getting up” is very subtle and usually the two can be synonyms.
“Standing up” is not related to sleep and just means the opposite of sitting down.
