The prosecutor can legally charge you with DUI even if you are asleep in your car because there is the possibility that you were either driving drunk and pulled over to sleep it off, or you would wake up soon and decide to drive home while you were still drunk. This happens all the time. Hire an experienced DUI attorney to represent you if you want to avoid having a DUI conviction on your permanent record.

Your question requires an attorney consultation. It is not a simple question that can be answered on this type of forum. There are many factors that would need to be considered and evaluated. How did your car get to the parking garage? Did you park there before you went to the bar? Do you have any witnesses who can prove that you did not drive your car to the garage after you had been drinking? Since we do not have all the facts, it is impossible to give a completely accurate answers. I strongly suggest that you contact an experienced criminal defense attorney for a face-to-face consultation and give him/her all of the facts surrounding your arrest. (S)he would then be in a better position to analyze your case and advise you of your options.

The DUI laws are written in such a way that, if you are in "control" of your car while under the influence you can be cited. This does not necessarily mean that you have to be behind the wheel anymore with the motor running. However, you should retain counsel if you are going to be charged with DUI to discuss more thoroughly the facts surrounding your case to see if there are any mitigating circumstances.
