    On my 2011 iMac with El Capitan i had my Display off set to 5 Minutes and Computer Sleep set to 3 Hours (Computer would automatically go to sleep in 3 hours if no activity is detected), Ever since i got my 2019 iMac with Mojave im puzzeled as to what i should have the Sleep setting set to because Apple doesn't have a seperate Display Sleep and Computer Sleep settings anymore and i absolutely despise that, I don't want to put the sleep setting on Mojave to 5 Minutes ( to basically put display and computer to sleep within 5 minutes) because sometimes i step away from the computer for more than 5 minutes and i wouldnt' want my iMac to go to sleep and wake up so many times per day,

    At this current time i am left with basically setting the sleep setting set to 5 minutes BUT i have "Prevent imac from going to sleep with display off" setting enabled and i basically put the iMac to sleep manually whenever i know i'll be away from the computer for an extended period of time.

    Does Catalina have the same sleep settings as Mojave or was it fixed/improved in catalina?

    The sleep settings vary depending on hardware more than by operating system. Newer Macs don't have the separate system/display sleep options, but older ones do. I believe the cutoff was around 2013.

    My 2019 iMac doesn’t, what do you suggest to get around this inconivience of not having that control over when computer goes to sleep?
