Monterey 12.6 - How do I stop from getting logged off the network?


I must not be looking in the right place. Just got my 2020 Mac mini with the M1 and the SSD with 250 gigs. First new Mac I've had in 10 years! Dang, I never knew a Mac could start up so quickly. My question is, when the system goes to sleep after 15 minutes, it's shutting down the network connection at the same time. So if I'm away at work and want to log on to my mini at home, TeamViewer can't find the home mini and says the system is not up and running. Isn't it or wouldn't it be possible to have the monitor go to sleep but not the mini? Call me old school (or old man), but after 30 years on Macs, the newer systems and software are getting too much to figure out if I haven't been keeping up.

Apple does a slight change up with each upgrade.

Go to System Preferences> Energy Saver. Here you can set the display to turn off at a specific time and select Prevent computer from sleeping automatically when display is off.
