Their in stasis
Stasis lock is a critical state of being for Transformers. Stasis lock is a sort of coma that allows a Transformer to stay alive, running at the lowest level of power despite massive energy loss or traumatic damage. It is comparable to the sleep mode of a computer.

Sometimes, it benefits Cybertronians, especially if they are tired or injured.


The Covenant of Primus

To defeat Unicron, the Thirteen concocted a plan where the youngest of their number, Optimus Prime, would enter the Chaos-Bringer and expose his Primus-like spark to Unicron's anti-spark, the resulting interaction knocking both into stasis lock. While Optimus was revived by Quintus Prime's Emberstone, Vector Prime created a time-loop around Unicron with the intent of leaving him comatose forever.

When the Great Cataclysm struck Cybertron the few Primes left rounded up as many survivors as they could and led them underground to wait out the out cataclysm in protective caves where they instructed their followers on how to enter stasis. Left on the surface by Prima, the Predaconsattempted to fly to safety before vague instinctual knowledge of stasis lock kicked in and they attempted to seek shelter underground.
