Here is an ancient Chinese proverb (that I just wrote):

 

睡觉的狗很容易被捕捉和吃的。

 

Sleeping dogs are easy to catch and eat.

Let sleeping dog lie would mean don't wake him up or else he'll bite you. The closest I can think of in Chinese would be 别踩狗的尾巴 meaning don't step on the dog's tail or else he'll bite you. Same outcome I guess.
