Is it normal for ill children not to sleep much?

DS is 3.3. Hes never been a big sleeper when ill but right now its unbelievable.

He has a temp of 39.6 and a bit of sickness and diarea. Last night he slept a total of 2 hours and he hasnt fallen asleep today despite just lying on the sofa for the past 6 hours. (Yesterday he had 3 short catnaps of 10-20mins)

He talked all through the night - I think at times he was hallucinating. We saw a Dr last night who said give calpol and lots of fluids.
