Does anyone have any suggestions for this cryptic clue? It's driving me mad!

Ensured one had a nap standing up (6)

Assuming that my other answers are correct the letter I have in the word are

?e?s?d

Any suggestions gratefully accepted.
Angela.

I think it's "teased". A teasel is a dried prickly flower head used for raising nap on cloth.

Thanks for your reply. I had thought of that word but didn't see how it fitted the clue. So thanks for the explanation and taking the time to reply.
I really appreciate it. Angela.
