Please refer to Indian Partnership Act. One who is not sleeping partner is an active or working partner. One needs to refer to the agreement to precipitate the sleeping or working partner.

Go through the partnership deed to check if working partner can share losses. However, for the purpose of defining working partner refer to the partnership act.
