    I just got my rMBP 15in 2015, this was a upgrade from my early 2011 17in. On my 17in in system prefs it has two sliders, one for display and one for system sleep. On this 15in it only has one for the display. I want the display to go to sleep but not the computer. This is making downloading large files impossible as my screen goes dark after 5 min, and unless i keep nudging the trackpad it stops downloading as the computer is now asleep. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    I'm not at my Mac right now but I believe turning off power nap will let you have the 2 sliders again.

    There are tools you can install to give you more options:

    InsomniaX
    Caffeine
    NoSleep

    it was already off, I tried turning it on but there was no change. There is a check box for prevent computer from going to sleep for the Power Adaptor settings, but nothing for battery.

    Hmm, i was hoping I would not have to install 3rd party software to do this, but I will look into it. Thank you for the suggestions.
