'Let sleeping dogs lie' = để con chó đang ngủ nằm yên, đừng động đến con chó đang ngủ -> nghĩa là đừng gợi lại những chuyện không hay trong quá khứ (avoid interfering in a situation that is currently causing no problems but might do so as a result of such interference.); "đừng bới cứt ra mà ngửi".

Ví dụ
Pro-establishment lawmakers should let sleeping dogs lie.

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie: Can We Prevent Metastases by Trapping Disseminated Tumor Cells (DTCs) in Dormancy?

If Sen. Jim Risch had followed the wise advice to let sleeping dogs lie, this would have been the brief and transient headline on this story. Alas, Risch briefly tried to stop the name change, which also meant trying to stop the giant spending bill the Senate ultimately passed.

Six years is a long, long time to be with someone without making up your mind on what you want. She’s right, in my opinion, to stand her ground on the marriage thing. Well, you said you are not concerned about her health; so what else could the issue be holding you back from giving her the level of commitment she demands from you? I think you should let sleeping dogs lie unless you have and you're willing what she’s asking for.
