    Recently i got my first retina Macbook pro, after owning a 2011 model, i noticed the sleep settings are somewhat different. There is only a slider for turning off the display but i don't see the actual sleep settings? Or am i missing something?

    Odd, I wonder if this something related to newer rMBPs. my 2012 rMBP has both.

    This is normal if you have an "Haswell" processor.

    The Mac goes to sleep when the display goes to sleep.

    There is no way to change this under batter power.

    When plugged in, you can check the option to prevent system sleep when the display shuts off.
